A Message from Gary Tucker (Branch Secretary)
I don’t know about you but I am quite well-rested after my many holidays and am ready to do some incredible things for our growing social movement! There’s a lot of activities which lie ahead so I thought I’d give you some dates for your diary.
These resume with our September one on Wednesday 13th September at 7.30pm. It takes place at Victoria Park Community Centre. The room will be ready from 7pm for refreshments and chat. I will send out details of motions to be debated, we have decisions to make as a branch going forwards and an election/ nomination as well in what promises to be an action-packed meeting! Don’t miss out on your chance to exercise your democratic rights as a member!
Continuous Campaigning Planning Meeting
This is to be held at Admiral’s Landing on Tuesday 29th August at 7.30pm. We need your help, especially if you signed up to be in the Writing Group to help us to plan an Autumn Continuous Campaign. It was very noticeable that you seemed very concerned about Worker’s Rights and we are sure the people of Bridgwater and District will respond to an education regarding this crucial area. Why not come along and chip in your ideas to make it a huge success?
This week- Discussion Group ‘Trident’
Following the success of last week’s discussion group, we will have a bonus one about Renewing the Nuclear Deterrent. Same time, same place this Thursday 24th August at 7.30pm in The Cobblestones, Eastover, we will be discussing Labour Party policy and debating the issues.
North Petherton By-Election Campaign
Our candidate is CHELSEA CHADWICK and the election will be on 14th September
The leaflets have been written and are being printed so if you can help with delivering them, please get involved. A schedule will be released to get them out to the areas in North Petherton by Tuesday 4th September.
Our new canvass team is raring to go and are going to be hitting the streets of Stockmoor and Wilstock initially. I intend to hold some persuasion training THIS FRIDAY followed by a social at a nearby pub. This session won’t actually have any canvassing in it but will be a very practical, hands-on workshop as we are now entering another election. As it is a new type of canvassing, it is suitable for beginners and experienced canvassers alike.
Wednesday 30th August 6pm-8pm Stockmoor Shops
Thursday 31st August 6pm-8pm Stockmoor Shops
Friday 1st September 6pm-8pm Wilstock followed by drinks in the
Saturday 2nd September 11am-2pm Wilstock
I hope you can make these exciting activities. I will put all of them up on the FB group page so please indicate whether you are coming.
We are nothing without our members so your help will win us elections like this, reeducate misguided voters and inevitably win us a Labour Government for the many, not the few!
