South Norfolk LIb Dems July Briefing

South Norfolk Liberal Democrats

Members' Briefing July 2019

Welcome to Our New Members

I am delighted to report that, in line with the national situation, more than 50 South Norfolk Residents have joined the Party in the last few months. I look forward to meeting them at our various gatherings.

EU Campaign Success

Following on from our good results in the District Council elections earlier in the month, the Party made a real breakthrough in the campaign for the EU Parliament elections on May 23rd. The Party's message was very clear - we are the "Stop Brexit Party" - and it paid off. Here in South Norfolk we received 23.5% of the total vote compared with 11.8 % by the Tories and just 5.7% by Labour. This was similar to the result across the Eastern Region and helped to elect two Lib Dem MEPs. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the two campaigns.

Campaigning Workshop

SNLD's Executive Committee is holding a special Workshop to discuss future campaigning etc. on Wednesday July 17th at Wacton Village Hall (NR15 2UH) starting at 7.30 pm. This will cover all aspects of campaigning including: Planning, Surveying, Canvassing, Literature and Online activity. The key objective is preparing for the County Council elections in 2021, but, of course we may have other campaigns to fight before then!

All members are welcome to attend this event and have their say on where we should be going.

Barbecue Invitation

The Waveney Valley Branch are pleased to invite all members and supporters to their Barbecue to be held on Friday 19th July at Chapel Farm Denton (IP20 0AW) starting at 7 pm.
