Many thanks to all those who joined us for a lovely, sunny afternoon’s canvassing in Forest Gate North on Saturday. We had a fabulous turnout of around 20 people, forming three separate groups who spread out then met back up for hot drinks and chocolate afterwards at CoffeE7 on Sebert Road.
All three of the candidates for 2014 were out: Seyi brought a splash of Labour red in her skirt, Ellie brought along chocolates for hungry campaigners afterwards (only slightly eaten by members of her family the previous night), and Rachel offered round suncream.
We were delighted to be joined by people from other wards, including Plaistow South and Beckton, and Lyn Brown also came along with her seasoned campaigning dog, Cara, who was a great hit with residents!
Many thanks to all those who attended. We met many more residents than we were hoping to, and heard lots of positive feedback, and ideas for work we could do to improve the local area.
