Loatland Ward by Election October 1977

1977, The Queens Silver Jubilee, the Union Flag flying all over Desborough and Phil Sawford stands as a Labour candidate for the first time.

Black and white with no photograph the Co-op printers (corner of High Street and Victoria Street) charged £15 for the printing. With just 6s 9d in the branch coffers David Coe, Tony Allen and Phil Sawford donated £5 each to cover the cost.

Phil won the election and served on the Town Council until 1997.

No web, no e-mail, no Facebook or Twitter but we had a printer in the town!
