The week prior to the 18 July vote in Parliament on Trident renewal was a busy time for many at Hemel Meeting. We spent hours distributing leaflets asking our local MP to vote No and explaining why. With a Friendly attitude, we talked to people, walked the streets placing them in post slots (sometimes against the wishes of barking dogs), and handed them out in the middle of Hemel. Although Parliament’s vote was Yes, many who took the leaflets preferred No. They appreciated the leaflet, its helpful explanations and its positive attitude about alternatives.
