Good Friday door knocking
19 April 2019
Erewash Labour welcomed in the Easter weekend today with a big canvassing session in Derby Road West ward in Long Eaton.
Two teams went out, with local members joined by campaigners from across the East Midlands, supporting local Borough Council candidates Andy Coles, Samantha Niblett and Andrew Peck.
Enjoying the glorious sunshine, Samantha Niblett said: “A huge thank you to all those who came out to support our canvassing session today in Derby Road West, Long Eaton.”
Candidates discussed our key manifesto pledges for the Borough Council elections with residents. Our pledges are to:
- Clean up our streets, allowing us to take pride in our towns.
- Take action to ensure that local roads are fit for purpose in the 21st century.
- Fight to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour by campaigning for more police.
- Absolutely oppose HS2.
- Build sustainable, affordable housing
Campaigners were also joined by Rory Palmer MEP, who will be standing again for election to the European parliament at the EU election on 23rd May.
