The three main ways are;
- with your time (leaflet delivering, canvassing, etc),
- with your thoughts (by contributing to our policy discussion groups, pizza and politics evenings, local issue reports, etc), or
- with your money.
If you'd like to come along to one of our Policy Discussion Groups or to a Pizza and Politics evening then details will be posted on this blog as and when one is arranged.
And finally we appreciate that many people don't have a lot of spare time but would like to contribute financially to something they believe in: it doesn't have to be a lot with options starting from as little as £5 a year! A small amount from many people will allow us to campaign for the policies *you* believe in. Of course the more resources, of all kinds, we have the more we can do!
If you'd like to help fund the local party then you can either speak to one of us (or ask us to call round) or print, complete, and sign the attached standing order mandate and send it along to the FREEPOST address printed on it and we'll do the rest.
