My week ahead, 24 - 30 August 2015

Monday 24 August, 6pm – Labour campaigning in Central Ipswich

Wednesday 26 August, 11am – Labour campaigning in Rushmere Ward

Saturday 29 August, 10am - Labour campaigning in South East Ipswich

Last week of August, and the last week with no meetings till Christmas but a good opportunity to get some Summer campaigning in.

Today has been a fantastic day as the Sky ride returned to Ipswich, Brilliant to see the thousands of people from young to old cycling the car free Ipswich streets. And what a show British Cycling put on – a cycle tricks show, a GB BMX star, bikes on show from Wiggo and Victoria Pendleton and all that was at the Alderman Rd rec Hub – there were further activities on show at the Town Hall, with tandems and penny farthings to try and ride.

Even the local paper quoted a couple from Colchester who wished their home town had an event like this.

Sky and British Cycling do not just pick our name out of the hat it happens because we have some great Council Officers in the events team, we have good local partners like Elmy Cycles, Crafted and others but we also have a Labour run council who believe this is the sort of thing we should be doing. Today proves the hard work is all worthwhile.

What we do not get is any praise or even a quiet ‘well done’ from our two Tory MPs but that should not come as surprise to anyone!
