It’s probably been a looooong time since a leader of one of the political parties came to our district. David Steel stopped off for a photo at Rayleigh Weir in 1983, but we can’t recall any others since then.
However according to Cllr Michael Hoy, the leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett, will be coming to Hullbridge and Hockley tomorrow.
Clearly the election there is hotting up…..
We’d like to officially deny the rumour that David Cameron was going to come, but was afraid of getting marooned in Watery Lane!
