Dear Member

I hope you can help out and enjoy these political and social events. Don’t worry if you have never been knocking on doors for Labour. We will explain things and support you at every stage.

Labour in power: what can Labour councils do?

Have your say in Newham Labour’s Campaign for 2018 

19.30 – 21.30, Tuesday 28th November

Venue: 306 Stratford High Street, London E15 1AJ

West Ham Constituency Labour Party (CLP) is pleased to invite you to an information sharing, discussion and social event on Tuesday between 19.30 and 21.30 on Tuesday 28th November.

1. Labour in power – what can Labour councils do? Cllr Sarah Hayward (former leader of Camden Council) will talk about the possibilities for Labour councils to transform and improve their local communities.

2. Cllr. David Christie, who is coordinating the project management of the 2018 Newham Labour Manifesto – which will form the policy platform that our candidates will be standing on – will talk about the process of drafting and agreeing the manifesto and will hear from members about their priorities for Labour in Newham; and

3.Cllr Charlene McLean (West Ham CLP Chair)
We know that many members won’t have been involved in selecting Labour candidates or helping to shape a manifesto before, and we want to make sure you really do have your say in your local Labour Party. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a member, if you haven’t been a meeting before or for a long time, or whether you are a regular attender at your local Branch meetings – we’d love to see you on Tuesday 28th November at 306 Stratford High Street, London E15 1AJ.

PS. We know winter nights can be cold and miserable, so refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!

[Please note this event was originally planned for the 21st November – so many apologies if you have received a notice for this date.]

Help unseat IDS in Chingford and Woodford Green!

Help unseat IDS in Chingford and Woodford Green!
Join Owen Jones and Labour’s fantastic candidate Bilal Mahmood to campaign to win Chingford and Woodford Green from Iain Duncan Smith on Sunday 9th July.

In 2015, IDS had a majority of over 8,300. It’s now less than 2,500. With a big push, Iain Duncan Smith will lose his seat.

A general election could happen at any moment. Jeremy Corbyn has asked us to be on a permanent general election footing. We can only win in Chingford and Woodford Green if we campaign now.

If you’ve never knocked on a door before – don’t worry. It’s easy, fun, and you’ll be paired with experienced people.

The plan is:
11AM: Meet to canvass at 7 Hatch Lane, Chingford, London E4 6LP
1PM: Fundraising lunch with speeches – All Saints Church, Highams Park E4 9QD
3PM: Meet to canvass at All Saints Church, Highams Park E4 9QD
