On Friday we welcomed Floella Benjamin OBE to Manchester Withington – Floella’s well known by many of us for her stint presenting Playschool and Play Away…a leading light in childrens’ TV and forever etched in people’s memories from childhood.
Floella’s a passionate advocate of all things Lib Dem, and an adviser to Nick Clegg on policies relating to children and early years provision. Floella joined myself, Cllr Paul Ankers and Chorlton’s local council candidate Victor Chamberlain for a visit to Head over Heels Indoor Play Centre in Chorlton during her time with us.
She also spent some time in the campaign office meeting our hard-working volunteers and staff. It was a pleasure to meet Floella, and hear her kind words about my work in Manchester Withington, and the work of the party as a whole.
Here’s a video Floella recorded while she was with us, in which she explains why she’s Lib Dem through and through!
