Starting the New Year as we mean to go on
Alex Baker and I are planning a little road trip to help three of our favourite candidates.
We are calling it the 3 seats challenge (#Lab3seats):
Saturday 4 January 2014
08.00: Meet Brixton tube for road trip (Music provided by Ben Dilks)
10.00: On the #LabourDoorstep for Peter Kyle (PPC for Hove and Portslade)
12.30: Hit the road (packed lunch provided by Hove CLP)
13.30: On the #LabourDoorstep for Chris Oxlade (PPC for Crawley)
16.00: Roadtrip back to London (arrive about 18.00)
Sunday 5 January 2014
11.00: Meet for #LabourDoorstep at Gants Hill tube (Central Line) to help Wes Streeting (PPC for Ilford North)
13.30: Sunday lunch at the Havester in Ilford (optional)
People can join whatever part of the trip they like and all Labour members are welcome. The more the merrier (please tweet using #Lab3seats)! We would ask people to voluntarily contribution to cover petrol and refreshments on the Saturday or to volunteer as a driver!
It would be nice to make a good impact for these candidates early in the new year.
Let us know if you are coming along.
Update (6 January): 51 in total joined the first weekend #Lab3seats challenge and made 1504 contacts for the three parties. 17 people did two seats and 14 completed all three and are therefore medalists:
