I am standing again as a Conservative candidate for the borough council. While delivering leaflets this week, I came across an house which had a sign saying "No Muddy Boots Allowed." It was a colourful, eye-catching sign.
I wonder if that household had a full shoes-off policy, or if, as the sign suggested, it only applied to muddy boots? It might be that the owners ran some sort of business from their home and regularly had workmen with muddy boots reporting in.
