Listening to Bicester [Video]

 

We spent a few hours in Bicester on Saturday talking to local residents about what was important to them.  Even though it rained the whole time, we had some great conversations with people there, and I was really encouraged by the number of people who promised me their vote.

The predominant discussions were over the climate emergency and threats to the NHS.  The state of the local high street was also a point of contention and as a retail campaigner, that was something I found very interesting.

Brexit was hardly mentioned though, which was also interesting given the strength of feeling on both sides during the referendum debate when I also ran a street stall in the town.

Here’s a video with a few thoughts about what was discussed.

We’ll be in Banbury next weekend.  Let’s hope the weather is kinder!
