Join us in North Wales on Saturday 1 April, as we campaign for two members - Ben Whitehouse and Michael Mackenzie - who are standing as Labour candidates in the Wrexham County Borough Council elections this May! It's vital that Labour wins control of this Council from the current administration, and Ben and Michael are standing in two key seats that we need to take to make that happen.
In the morning we'll be campaigning for Ben in the seat of Gwersyllt North. We'll be meeting at 9.30am in the car park of Gwyn Evans Leisure and Activity Centre, Heol Cefn, Gwersyllt LL11 4HQ. There'll be a ward briefing and then at 10am we'll be heading out on the doors to speak to local residents and deliver leaflets, as well as give people the opportunity to meet the candidate.
We'll break for lunch at 12noon and then at 1pm we'll be meeting in the car park of Home Bargains, Dodds Lane, Gwersyllt LL11 4NT to go out and campaign for Michael in Gwersyllt East and South. Again there'll be a ward briefing before we head out on the doors at 1.30pm to speak to residents and deliver leaflets, as well as give people the opportunity to meet the candidate.
And do stick around afterwards as Ben and Mike will take everyone for tea and coffe afterwards as a thank-you for their support.
Please note that if you are travelling to Wrexham via Chester, there will be some public transport issues that weekend - more information here.
See you on 1 April as we fight to Win Back Wrexham!Sunday, April 09, 2017 at 11:00 AMRailway Tavern in Thetford, United Kingdom
Join us on Sunday 9th April in Thetford to campaign to re-elect Cllr Terry Jermy to Norfolk County Council.
This seat is an ultra-marginal between Labour an UKIP with only 1 vote between the two Parties in 2013 so every bit of help, every leaflet delivered and every door-knocked will make a difference.
Join us to help Terry get re-elected and ensure we keep another Labour councillor and a strong voice for LGBT people on the council. It's also hugely important to help stop UKIP here.
If you've not been out campaigning before there will be a briefing and support to get you going.
We'll be meeting outside the Railway Tavern at 11am (which is opposite Thetford railway station, map here) for our morning session. We'll meet there again at 2pm for out afternoon session (we'll stop for lunch at 1pm).
