Campaigning Update

Well done Karen for organising the Harlow Campaign day yesterday. It is vital that we campaign in our target seats, and particularly those where we are trying to get CF branches built up. It does no end of good to see a group of young people on the streets interested and passionate about politics.

As well as canvassing 95% of the ward, the campaigners led by Karen, and joined by new exec member James Dinsdale, as well as Area Chairman George Askew, delivered leaflets which amongst other hot local topics published the new CF branch and the second event to be held on 20th February. Karen wrote about the event here (and you'll see who I nicked the photo from!).

Speaking of campaigning, the Hammersmith campaign day is this Saturday - for those of you that have yet to burn off the mince pies and Christmas pudding, this is the ideal way to shed some pounds. However it is also a great way to learn about campaigning techniques from highly succesful campaigner (Greg Smith) who ran the successful Greg Hands MP campaign, who my predecessor used to work for. In the afternoon, after a pub lunch, we will continue campaigning, which is a perfect opportunity to catch up with friends, and meet new people whilst hopefully delivering a triple blue success in Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea whenever the next election is.
The day kicks off at 10am, but we are able to cater for arrivals at various points in the day. If you have something you desperately need to do, then make sure you come and join us for the afternoon, or, join us for the morning and skive off at lunchtime. Whilst we'd love you to stay with us for the full day, each CF man / woman hour counts!

In the evening, London North East are holding a Brick Lane curry night. Gareth Thompson, along with Havering CF members, as well as Ilford and Epping CF members have signed up for a night to remember. And being a 5 minute walk from my house is rather convenient! If you are interested in either the Hammersmith Campaign day, or Brick Lane curry, drop me an e-mail at clairepalmer@conservativefuture.com.
