* Our next session is in Ilford North meeting Sat 13 September at 11am at South Woodford station. More info here.
Canvassing is what we call knocking on doors to listen to local residents’ ideas and concerns and connecting with people and communities. We also do phone canvassing where we do exactly the same thing, but by telephone. And sometimes we hold street stalls to talk to people when they’re out and about.
As well as talking to people in West Ham we often go and help Labour candidates in other areas. In the run up to the 2015 general election we’ll be helping Wes Streeting to become the next MP for Ilford North and Polly Billington for Thurrock. We often organise going out to help as a group – but details of some of their sessions are below in case you’re free and able to help out on a day we have’t organised.
We would love you to come and join us canvassing. It’s a great way of finding out what people really care about as well as helping Labour get elected. Don’t worry if you haven’t done it before, can’t walk very far or haven’t got much time – we’ll pair you up with someone who does.
Thurrock has sessions every Sat meeting at 10.20. Call Lola for info on where they are meeting on 07411445128 or 01375 844108.
