All the candidates were in Coventry for Womens Question Time. We had 2 minutes each to make our speeches then an hour and half of questions. A tough audience who not only pressed us in person they send another 40 questions afterwards.  
Many thanks to the organisers and their hard work in putting together a successful evening.

We visited a local retirement home complete with budgerigars. Although the residents were chatty and asked questions about the election they were also interested in my campaign dog, who in turn was very interested in the budgerigars.
The residents will be voting but they were not declaring their choice.


You can guess which one of us was the most popular

 A fantastic welcome from the 200 strong at the Tuesday Club. Keep fit was in progress when I arrived, they exercised and I watched.. After my campaign speech the audience kept me exercised answering questions galore.
A really enjoyable morning followed by tea and buns.
My thanks to Sister Theresa for inviting me along and all her hard work in the community.

One of the ladies was concerned about the lack of smoke alarms in her home. Tell anyone age over 65 to phone 0800 389 5525 or email contact.centre@wmfs.net. This is a free service provided by WM Fire Brigade.

Spent the first part of the morning with other candidates at the Midlands Polish Community Center in Walsall. The audience were from across the West Midlands and many related stories of poor police response.
It was clear that changes were needed to provide a better policing service and improve the relationship between the police and polish community.
Many thanks to Elizabeth and Agata for organising the event and acting as interpreters. A great skill which was performed to perfection.

Next stop Carrs Lane Church to speak to Pensioners and hand out leaflets. They were polite but very annoyed about the lack of information regarding the election

Then to Sangat TV which aims to share and promote Ekta (social and community cohesion) through the universal message of Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Our charming host Gurdail Singh Atwal asked a series of questions and tried to promote a speedy response from the candidates who talked around the question. That is except for me who was clear and direct about my intentions whilst PCC.   

Many thanks to Team Sangat for raising the profile of the elections and engaging the Sikh community.

Final job of the day to chauffeur an elderly lady  to her local church where I handed out some leaflets then headed home to tea cooked by my lovely husband.

Along with the other candidates I addressed a very large audience at the Drum in Newtown. We were filmed, transmitted over the airwaves by Newstyle Radio and recorded by individuals.
The feisty audience challenged us all with questions ranging from stop and account/search, deaths in police custody, finance cuts, Birmingham pub bombings, ineffective police responses, racism in the police, lack of trust and confidence in the police.

Many thanks to Desmond Jaddoo and team at The Drum

Reverend Larry Wright invited me to talk with the congregation at St George's Church, Bridge Street West in Newtown. They were a very friendly, diverse group who asked a number of questions about me and the PCC role.
The tea and cakes I had afterwards were very welcome and tasty. It was nice to talk with individuals about their view of the election.


Many thanks for their hospitality and to Reverend Larry for inviting me along.

Danny McErlean and his team at Alum Rock Service Station have been doing their bit to  raise the profile of the election.
They have a couple of candidates in mind who they think will improve the policing service to the public.

Perry Lloyd and Mark have been disappointed at the lack of information. Now I have chatted about the importance of the role they will voting on 15th November.

A great response from visitors to Solihull High Street.
Many people were aware of the election but not the candidates.
A local resident John offered to circulate leaflets at the local golf club and other took some for the neighbours.
Every little helps so my thanks to all of you not just in Solihull but right across the West Midlands.
