17. I'm getting nothing like that, though I'm in a seat the Tories should win, as long as they try

We had a 'newspaper-style' folded sheet from them, which is fairly standard (they did something similar for the county council election). I didn't bother reading it (I genuinely did need to line my composting bin, just then) so I didn't look to see how much was 'May May May' and how much was the sitting Tory, though I think his name was prominent on the first page.

What I have found out is that my constituency is not going to have any hustings at all. There was the possibility of a church and a school organising something last week (in the neighbouring town), but the Manchester bomb then suspended the campaigns, and after that, people have just said "too much hassle to organise now". So the total of outreach, debate and education on positions, manifestos etc. has been a leaflet each from the main parties, and their websites. About as much as you get from a new takeaway.
