Epping Forest Campaigning

On Saturday I went out to Epping Forest to help out in a campaign day organised by Epping Forest Council for an upcoming by-election, caused by a Lib Dem resignation.
CF Chairman, Ben Murphy, had helped out the Council / local Association by bringing along a number of his CF members to see over 20 activists out on the streets, and the campaigning finished much quicker than the Association anticipated, and us in the pub much earlier than expected! Here are some of the CFers pictured in the pub!
I wish Mr Chana, the candidate, all the best for the by-election this Thursday. We were also joined by members of the Harlow and Chelmsford Assocations and Simon Jones with his Essex area hat on (metaphorical hat!). Photos to follow.

This weekend Matt Richardson is organising a National CF Official Action day in Battersea. The brief outline of the day is:
10am Meet at Clapham Junction station (10 mins from Waterloo / Victoria)
10.15am Welcome at Peabody Hall, Peabody Estate - with coffee and biscuits
10.30am - 12 noon Training with Justine Greening MP
LUNCH - sandwiches, crisps and drinks provided
12.45pm Delivery briefing
1pm Santa Hats distributed and CAMPAIGNING
4/5pm Thank you drinks in Slug and Lettuce, right by Clapham Junction station

Jane Ellison, the PPC, Rob, the agent, and Justine will be about during the day to galvanise and organise the troops. If you haven't already done so, please reply to Matt at matthew@matthewrichardson.com to sign up. This is a great opportunity to meet / chat with the CF Exec and other CF members from throughout the country, and to make a real difference. Jane Ellison has just a 163 majority to overcome and we could make that difference in one day. Please do come along, even if you can just make the afternoon. And you get a blue santa hat!
