My week ahead, 28 September - 3 October 2015

Monday 28 September, 4pm – Culture portfolio meeting
6pm – Labour Group campaigning

Wednesday 30 September, 7pm - Ipswich Labour Party, All members meeting, Ipswich Library

Saturday 3 October, 10am – Labour campaigning in South East Ipswich

On Wednesday we have our first all member meeting since the leadership election and we hope and expect to see many of our new members at this meeting. We look forward to their input, I am sure they will be made welcome and will see that the Ipswich Constituency is a modern one, our meetings give everyone a chance to speak – it is not all minutes, agendas and motions, it will include important debate and that means Ipswich are already doing what Jeremy Corbyn wants all Labour groups to do – involve members, debate and let them help set policy.

We have had an amazing influx of new members since May and that was boosted further in the last two weeks since Corbyn won. Then last week we saw a surge of new members join us and Labour Students at the UCS Freshers Fayre.

In the country we have now more new members than there are members in the whole Lib Dem party, here in Ipswich we probably have more new members than the total membership of the Ipswich Tories, Lib Dems, Greens and UKIP branches all joined together.

Now it is our duty to keep those new members motivated and get them out with us campaigning against this vicious Tory Government.
