Opinion: Will you do your bit for Super Thursday?

Thursday, November 15th, isn’t just the date of the Police Commissioner elections. There’s by-elections in Cardiff, Manchester and Corby and an election for the mayor of Bristol. There’s also by-elections pending in Croydon North and Middlesbrough.

That means a lot of campaigns at the same time. But, look on the bright side, they’re neatly spread right across the county. So, for most of us, there’s one within easy reach.

With so many by-election campaigns running at the same time, the campaign teams could really do with your help. That means help, not in three weeks time, but help at any time, starting now!

There’s also special Regional Action Days, to support most of these campaigns. With each day, there’s a free lunch, and with some there’s even a free hot meal in the evening.  As well as campaigning, there’ll be a chance to socialise with leading campaigners from across the region.  And, if you live in Birmingham, don’t feel left out, as there’s also a “peacetime” Regional Action Day in Birmingham Yardley.

As with Regional Action Days out of an election period, those coming are asked to use the pre-registration form, so the local team know how much food to prepare, and how much campaigning materials.

Manchester Central, Sat Nov 3rd

Cardiff South and Penarth, Sat Nov 3rd

Bristol, Sat Nov 3rd

Croydon North, Sat Nov 3rd

Birmingham Yardley, Sat Nov 3rd

Corby, Sat Nov 10th

So many great days, with most this coming Saturday.  I’d like to say, “See you there”, but sadly, on November 3rd, I can’t be in more place than one.  So maybe see you there…

  • Any chance of a VPB code for one or more of these?

  • John Bridges 31st Oct '12 - 9:44pm

    Ruaraidh, I’m sure the others will have them too but for Manchester Central the VPB code is E5658B-5339

  • Thanks folks – staying up in Inverness it’s a bit tricky to come down for these in person!

  • Simon Drage 1st Nov '12 - 5:44pm

    If your looking beyond super Thursday the VPB code for Croydon North is CC6F9A-3918.

  • Thanks folks, a couple of us did some phoning for Manchester Central last night. Slightly off-topic, but I don’t suppose there’s a list somewhere of VPBs people want help with? It might be worth adding that to the Connect Users facebook group or similar.

  • The VPB code for Middlesbrough is AA39AE-8184
