Our new local support worker, Helen, has been busy getting the forward plan for next year’s local elections in place, and coordinating our activities. Helen will be supporting campaigns in all parts of Herefordshire, especially where we have sitting councillors, but also in Hereford where we hope to break through and add to the four already elected.
We have had two Big Days Out in November, one in Ellie’s ward, Bishops Frome & Cradley, and one in Leominster. Both were very well supported with dozens of activists from all parts of the West Midlands arriving to help with a ‘60 second’ residents’ survey and other leafleting. Both very positive days and very heartening to have so much support. Many thanks to all those who came along to help.
The next few months will be busy with plans for delivering a New Year card in early January, a visit from Co-Leader Sian Berry, a newsletter for February, and then newsletter and leaflet delivery in the countdown to the elections in May. We will need lots of help and will be letting everyone know the dates for these activities as soon as possible, so get your diaries out and allocate some time for helping where you can.
Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year
