    Not sure I read somewhere not to canvass on Sunday. I've been thinking about doing it myself on a Sunday because EVERYBODY is home but might annoy a lot of people.

    Knock on my door at 10am on a Sunday and see what happens Lou! :p

    I personally (if knocking on a Sunday) do so from 11am till about 3 or 4.

    Success depends on how many people want your service :)

    sundays a good a day as any, when knocking doors you dont know whos gonna answer or what mood they will be in, if you can knock doors on a monday you can knock on a sunday surely. More people are in so you will probably get told to feck off more and pick up more custies

    if you need the work,go get it
    but dont quit early -often a slow start is rewarded with a very satisfying finish

    so set your plough deep,and plough on

    you into that stuff? iv been to a few ploughing competitions over the years . dont know if you know Paul Heiney [of TV fame] he lives locally and is often a judge. i had a run in with him, on the way to a competition, i caused him to lose control in his SAAB car when i drove at him in a Sherpa van, we was driving at about 60mph at the time on a dirt road nearly a head-on collision , his face was a picture
