Time for Action

What’s going on in South Leicestershire?

Over the last year an ever-increasing band of volunteers comprising, councilors, candidates, members and our MP have been meeting each month on a Saturday morning to carry out an essential activity for our association.

Most recently households in Lutterworth, Narborough, Littlethorpe, Pastures Ward, Whetstone and Countesthorpe have received leaflets explaining the good work being done on their behalf by our dedicated councilors. We need to keep on informing residents of the local issues and how we are resolving them. The local elections in May might be overshadowed by national events so it’s essential that we keep putting our message across concentrating on local matters and concerns.

If you haven’t attended one of our Action Days then please come along and join in the fun. We meet at 10 o’clock on a Saturday for two hours of leafletting followed by a pub lunch or the chance to enjoy Ruth’s bacon and sausage butties which are now legendary. You may also get the chance to challenge Alberto on the dartboard which I did in Countesthorpe after a thorough soaking on the wettest day we’ve ever encountered. Despite the weather we have great camaraderie at these events and we have I believe the best campaign team in Leicestershire and Rutland and I should know because I also go out from time to time to help the other associations.

Please check your email inbox and look out for a message from Vicky with full details of our forthcoming Action Days. Alberto and the team will be pleased to see you and will make you most welcome. Even if your time is limited and you can only spare an hour it will be a valuable contribution. If you’re unable to make it on Saturdays but have time during the week then let Vicky know because we don’t always complete all of the routes on the same day and we can usually team you up with someone on a weekday.

With the forthcoming local elections in May we need your help now more than ever before. Please help if you can and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Action Day Co-ordinator.
