Rhyl and Bodelwyddan

Day of contrasts today. First out and about in Bodelwyddan with local party activist talking to residents businesses etc. Cold and rainy weather not very condusive to conversation but generally the usual friendly response.

Lunch time saw a long planned visit to the Mosque and a chat with some of the worshippers afterwards. Told them about living most of my life in Leicester and my previous contacts with the Muslim community. Explained why we need a parliament and eventual independence and how Plaid seeks to be the party of everyone who lives in Wales. Got a very warm reception indeed.

Had lots of good questions but none on Iraq or the Middle East. Those came later as we chatting less formally. Lots of very positive people and some possible new members.
