Had a good, if rather rain-sodden morning in Sheringham. I met my parents' former vicar and his wife who moved to Sheringham from Saffron Walden a few years ago. He presided at my sister's wedding. Small world. In the afternoon David Willetts came to North Walsham for a tour of East Coast Plastics in North Walsham and a spot of door knocking. In the evening it was to Wells where we had about 20 canvassers, a quite astonishing number. The fact that I have promised to reopen the hospital has certainly gone down well. One lady, who had voted LibDem previously, said I had given her a real dilemma and wouldn't it be better if they could have both myself and Norman Lamb?! Perish the thought!
