Mark Menzies begins canvassing in Fylde


FYLDE’S Conservative Parliamentary Candidate braved the blustery conditions for the first day of canvassing following the launch of his General Election campaign.

Former Member of Parliament Mark Menzies, who is standing in Fylde again on May 7, was out knocking on doors in Staining with local Fylde borough councillor John Singleton.

During the canvas, the two candidates spoke to residents about a range of national and local issues.

Mr Menzies said: “It was a great first day canvassing and we met a lot of people who were supportive of the work done by the Government and local council.

“The guarantees on state pension increases were one area which people were pleased about, as was Fylde borough’s decision to freeze council tax for the last five years.

“During my time as Member of Parliament I have always been made to feel welcome in Staining and canvassing was no different.

“I have walked in various Gala Day processions and was proud to attend the dedication of the new War Memorial last year.

“I have also visited the primary school on a number of occasions and spoken to the children and staff.

“Staining has two excellent councillors in John Singleton and Albert Pounder and I know they, like me, have been proud to represent the residents and would love to be allowed to continue to do so.”
