West Ham CLP fielded both a morning and afternoon shift to help out with the Thurrock by-election on Sunday. The by-election was called after the death of much respected Labour Councillor Diana Hale.
The West Ham morning group, including our MP Lyn Brown, delivered hundreds of leaflets in the pouring rain. The afternoon group very nearly saw the sun as they knocked doors of the “undecided” in the avenues of Stifford Clays ward.
It was all worth it. Sue Shinnick won the ward for Labour and ensured that Thurrock Council remained a Labour hold. Congratulations to Sue from all of us at West Ham.
