Canvassing in Peterborough

CMF Executive members Dr Haq Nawaz was the Conservative candidate in Peterborough North Ward for the local elections held on 2 May 2019.

Accordingly, on Saturday 27 April 2019 a team from the CMF Executive endured a freezing cold wind, and occasional rain, canvassing for Dr Nawaz.

You can see the team in the picture below. From left to right:

  6. Ash Zaman

Below we see the team loading up with leaflets before starting to knock on the doors of known Conservative supporters to remind them to vote the following Thursday. Their clothing tells you how cold it was!

Finally, any calories the team had burned off on the streets of Peterborough North ward were replenished in a local restaurant!

Sadly the outcome of the election was that Dr Nawaz was placed a creditable second with 786 votes, but the seat was won by the Labour and Cooperative Party candidate Ansar Ali with 1,473 votes.
