Happy 80th Brithday Peggy!

Peggy Anderson has been a stalwart and endlessly cheerful volunteer for the Newbury "Liberals" (as she calls them) since puss was a kitten. She has been particularly effective as leader of the powerful "Granny Gang" who bundle, fold and stuff fueled by endless tea and laughter.

Many people associate Peggy’s smile with Newbury Liberal Democrats, especially as she has fronted many of our campaign offices and ushered in constituents to the MP’s surgery for many years. This week she celebrates her 80th Birthday. Many of the "Granny Gang" joined her for a celebration lunch today at the Chequers Hotel in Newbury. Many of us have been inspired by the extraordinarily cheerful way in which Peggy has fought cancer for nigh on 30 years. Her smiles are a tonic and she is a superb example to us all!
