Some early 1980's leaflets added today.

Many thanks to the Eastcott lady who wanted to share them with us :)

Didn't Stan Pajak look young in 1983 and very miserable? - Why would he expect to be elected looking that glum?

and guess what he mentions a Kingshill Crossing, Chris W - well his tenure in Eastcott could be said to produce results couldn't it?

It is certainly very interesting looking back!

What about the camera recordings in Council we were promised?
