It was a pleasure to return to Eastleigh for the third time in this campaign at the weekend. It was very inspiring to see the large numbers of members of Liberal Youth helping. Many had made long journies to get to Eastleigh. I was delivering with Matt and Johnny from Birmingham University, who travelled down by train for the day. It was their first time helping at a by-election.
A quick look at Liberal Youth websites and Facebook pages shows they have been spearheading huge efforts in Eastleigh. On Saturday they organised a special Liberal Youth Flock to Eastleigh event which was topped off by a rally addressed by Mike Thornton.
I would recommend having a look at the Today I made a difference website. It has some truly inspiring photos and videos of Liberal Youth members helping with phone banks and the like.
Well done to Liberal Youth for all your fantastic work in this campaign!
