Grassroots campaigning: Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price ‘mows man’s lawn’ to get his vote
Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price has attempted to show his dedication to winning every vote in the upcoming local elections by mowing a voters’ lawn.
The Carmarthen East and Dinefwr Senedd Member posted a picture of himself – in a full suit – mowing the lawn on Facebook.
“He said he’d vote Plaid Cymru if I mowed his lawn,” he said on his public page, during a day of campaigning in Port Talbot.
The local elections take place on 5 May. Plaid Cymru currently control Gwynedd Council, and also Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion alongside a group of independents.
Get in the queue, Owen! Also been asked to bake a blueberry cake, power wash a drive, paint an extension and mow some lawns in Aberteifi (can you help with this @ElinCeredigion?!) 🤣🏴💪 https://t.co/ZGtCS5TEs0

The picture caused much mirth on Facebook, with Gareth D. J. Harper saying it was “a fine example of grassroots management in action.”
Another one expressed annoyance that they had already voted and therefore would not have their lawn mowed.
“Paint my extension and I will think about it,” Caroline Luker said.

Some cynics might think it’s a political stunt, but I think it’s Adam Price saying. If I promise to do something I’ll do it.
It was a nice thing to do. Just waiting for the Torybots to appear on other social media accusing him of corruption by buying votes through his good deeds.
I am not a ‘Torybot’,but I can still ask,is this legal?
No, but the police are too tied up with county lines gangs right now. Rhed nerth dy draed, Adam bach! Ma’ pawb yn gweld dy droseddau 😉😉😉
I’ll be voting Plaid. But, Adam… Stay the heck away from my lawn! What an act of grass butchery! 😉
So having failed to convince the guy on his party’s politics, our Adam bought his vote with a bit of lawn mowing. Is that legal? 😉
But I know you’re not being serious.
