Campaigning for Trish Beadle, 1st Oct

Update from Mark White:

Last night was the penultimate canvassing session in the by-election campaign and I got my wish to have a photo with 10-14 activists on a street corner. We were supported by four members of the Acomb and Westfield ward of York Central and there are 13 on the street corner (including Charlie from Acomb who took the photo). In fact, we were joined by Mick and also Jerome later in the evening so there were 15 of us in total. My thanks to all involved – it was a wonderful statement of support.

Tonight is the last canvass; we are meeting at ATS Tyres at 5:45pm.

We almost completed the road group In Hambleton East last night; it was 187 houses but we fell 39 short when it became too dark to see the board! It was fruitful though, we gained 43 Labour promises and seven people took posters to put up.

My thanks to Trish Beadle, Philip Smith, Deanna Pearce, Richard Walter, Andy Hart and to Barbara Hawkins who came over from Richmond CLP.

We are out again on Wednesday and a couple of the regulars can’t make it so I really, really need some help. If you can make it then please do as we have 201 houses to knock.

We are meeting at the junction of Dowber Way, St Mary’s Walk and Herriott Way, Thirsk at 5:45pm for a prompt 6pm start. Please come and help.

T&MCLP News Bulletin #26

5th. September  2018

Thirsk By-election 4th October 2018

We have a great chance to take a seat on Hambleton District Council from the Tories.  Our candidate Trish Beadle stood as an Independent in the 2015 District Council election and polled 778 votes without any support; a testament to how well known and respected she is in the ward. The Tory in second place polled 1,423 votes. Combining Trish’s popularity with our ability to get numbers out on the streets supporting her we definitely can win.  As a result of the campaigning that Vale of York Branch have been doing over the last two months we already have  100 Labour promises.

The Branch has created a campaign plan for the next four weeks, culminating in all day Election Day effort to get out the vote. In a by-election, when turnouts tend to be low, this will be crucial. The plan starts with a door knocking session on 5th September starting 6.00 and meeting up at Blytheway Stores, 10 Sutton Rd, Thirsk YO7 1DJ. This is followed by two or three leafletting and door knocking sessions every week up to 4th October. The full campaign programme is attached with contacts for each event. This is a well organised campaign being run by a keen local team. With your help we can win this one, which would be a huge step forward in giving voters proper representation and raising the profile of the Party across the Constituency.  Every member should do their best to get to at least one of the campaign events. If you haven’t campaigned before the Team will look after you and pair you with an experienced campaigner. This is also a wonderful opportunity to get experience of campaigning ahead of the 2019 Council elections when we will be contesting a large number of seats. Call Mark White  07831 306795, Phil Smith           07789 513791 or Trish Beadle   07526 435103 for further information.
