Tonight (Tuesday 16th) following court I am off to the marginal seat inaugaral event in Loughborough with PPC Nicky Morgan. If anyone is interested in attending, please do just turn up to the Griffin pub in Ashby Square, Loughborough, any time from 7.30pm, although we will no doubt be there for the rest of the night.
New exec member James Dinsdale has stepped in and assisted with the final preparations for the event, including e-mailing those who have responded to the Youth survery and included their e-mail addresses.
The survey is a fantastic way of getting the views of the younger members in the relevant constituency, and also identifies potential members. Nicky is in the process of collating all of the data, and will be writing to those who have responded, with the results, as well as what her next steps are to try and deal with those issues she can. It is vital to engage with young people, and to let them have their say. It is amazing how many good ideas come out of exercises such as this!
Since 8th January I have been doing a 3-4 week trial in Luton Crown Court which has meant a number of late nights as I have had to head back to the office about 6.30pm where I have stayed for a number of hours producing schedules! Apologies if I have not responded to your e-mails during this time but I only have evening access.
UPDATE: See here for how the event went.
