2005 - Overland trip to sign a Friendship Agreement with Jericho & import Olive Oil.

Rod facilitated a Friendship Agreement between Chester & Jericho and for the signing ceremony offered to pay the expenses of 3 councillors, one from each of the 3 main parties, to fly out there. This was only taken up by the Liberal Democrats.

Rod and 3 companions set off overland in what was to become our signature green minibus to meet the councillor in Jericho and then drive back with a consignment of Palestinian Olive Oil to prove an overland route was possible.
