Independent backing from Cllr. Neil Scarr of Fulbourn
"Dear Mr. Woollard,
Congratulations on your efforts to Save Our Fens from flooding, which I totally support, and also on having the courage to stand for the House of Commons without the support of the major parties. I had considered doing the same (to the extent of having a draft leaflet ready for "the off") but under all the circumstances, I think I'd rather support your campaign.
Please get in touch if there's anything I/we can do to help, such as leaflet drops in Fulbourn or the other villages in the Fulbourn County Division where I was recently a candidate and drew quite a lot of support and may even be remembered.
Neil Scarr ... South Cambs District Councillor and Fulbourn Parish Councillor (Independent)"
To which I replied:
"Thanks so much, Neil, and please don't call me 'Mr Woollard' - I'm Geoffrey to everybody, as well you know!!!
I deeply appreciate the sacrifice that you are making in order to assist me. I will call upon you in due course.
