Thanks Dye :)

Must be 2000 then, Kirt Wakefield would have been too young to stand in '95

I would agree as the pamphlet quotes William Hague and William Hague was only Tory leader for the 2001 general election.

On Peter Mallinson's latest leaflet he talks about serving the ward for six years which takes us back to 2005, but he was elected in a bye election which means that it could have been anytime that year.  I feel 2005 is the right year.  Incidentally he beat Andy James Conservative who went on to win in Dorcan in 2007

A recent attempt to carbon date him was 'inconclusive'.

Stupid people like me put them in a box rather than throw them away!! 

I still have many boxes to go through so expect to find a whole lot more

Sad isn't it?
