Keeping on keeping on!

A personal post…

by Claire Hudson on September 23, 2014

Today is my wedding anniversary! We agreed to postpone a meal out until after the by-election… Tonight I’m out talking, yet again, to the good voters of Frome North. This was us 8 years ago outside St John’s Church in Frome. I can’t believe how small our nephew and nieces were! We managed to pick […]
