A peek into Jane Dodds’ Llandrindod Wells office

This time last week, I was delivering leaflets in Llandrindod Wells. I would love to go back, but family circumstances make it impossible before the by-election next Thursday.

So, it would be really great if someone would go in my place. Or even if lots of people went in my place. They really need to talk to as many people as possible. The little conversations you have with people can answer their questions and move them from potentially not voting or voting for someone else, to voting for Jane. And Jane is definitely worth voting for.

I want to see someone with her wisdom and kindness on our benches. She is so committed to tackling poverty, inequality and loneliness – as well as getting better health and transport services and better connectivity in this huge and gorgeous rural constituency. Catch up with the chat I had with her here.

If you do head to Brecon you will meet some lovely people. Here is the team at work in the Llandrindod Wells office last Sunday..

Every time the shelves look like they are getting empty, they fill up again.

It is worth dropping everything and getting there in this last week. This is a great campaign that you will want to be a part of. If Jane wins, Boris’s majority is cut to just one.

  • Off there on Tuesday with two Wiltshire colleagues to see it through to close of poll. I was there to see Richard Livsey elected back in the day and will be to see Jane home to join Jo’s growing team. Look forward to seeing many, many other LDV readers “taking your place” in Brecon, Caron!

  • The message came over loud and clear …. feet on the ground needed. This was one of the VERY few quite moments that Caron used to make the video, usually the office full of people signing in/ returning from delivery/canvassing 🙂

  • Absolutely agree with this! I was there on Monday, canvassing in Llandrindod and then in Prestigne with Jane Dodds, and help is really needed! They need people every day next week, not just the weekend! This seat is winnable with enough people!

    I’ll be back there on Monday evening for two days, Caron, and hope to get some canvassing in this time. I took a liking to the town itself, though as for Presteigne, not a very alive place two weeks ago! Looking forward to seeing you again, Andy Sangar, and know from the Copeland by-election that everything must be well run now that the Sheffield expert is in charge.
