Oakhill surgery


The C-pod in action

The C-pod was in action again yesterday morning in Oakhill Road. Helen Whately, Nick Kilby, Janet Bowen -Hitchings, Mavis Cracknell and self were in attendance. So were numerous people doing door knocking and delivering literature throughout the area.

Local residents came along in sufficient numbers to keep Janet and me, who stayed on the pod, fully engaged in dealing with local problems from 10.30 to after half past 12.

A very successful morning’s work – followed by a trip to Chessington North and Hook in the evening for a ‘Beetle Drive’. This has become a Chessington Tory tradition, going all the way back to at least 2002. I can assure you that no actual beetles were injured in the process! If anyone doesn’t know what a beetle drive is, I will explain on request.
