Action day in Barnsley this weekend

The Barnsley Central by-election has been called for March 3rd. That’s just over three weeks away. As always, the earlier we help, the more help it will be.

So this coming Saturday, a few LibDemVoice readers will be going over to an Action Day, organised by the local activists.

The Action day is on Saturday 12th Feb 2011, from 10.30 am onwards, at Darton Parish Rooms, Church St, Darton, Barnsley, S75 5HQ. Teas/coffees will be provided.

As well as a chance to help the local campaign, it’ll be a chance to get to meet. I don’t know about you, but I feel I’ve got to know some of you over the last six months. It’d be great to meet you in person.

If you can come, it’d be helpful if you could email the local activists at [email protected], so they know how many are coming.

    Has a Lib Dem candidate been selected yet? Come to that, do we know for sure whether there are going to be separate Lib Dem and Tory candidates rather than a Coalition candidate?

  • “do we know for sure whether there are going to be separate Lib Dem and Tory candidates rather than a Coalition candidate?”

    Yes, we know for sure there will be a lib-dem candidate, not a coalition one.

    A coalition candidate!? You are kidding us, right?

    Nothing would surprise me any more.

    But I think you’ll have to deliver a hell of a lot of “It’s a two-horse race” leaflets to avoid coming third this time.

    No, but joking aside, you’ll need to choose a candidate fairly soon. It’s only three weeks to polling day. You’ll have to nominate someone by the middle of next week!

  • Hi Friends,

    We’re looking forwards to meeting activists from many areas of the UK. LibDems in Barnsley have suffered from the last boundary change, losing many of OUR finest activists to Penistone and Stocksbridge.

    Recent co-operative work with Rotherham LibDems has shown how we can work together effectively and perhaps illumnate the path for local parties to merge/work together when Constituencies are reduced from 658 (?) to 600. This of course depend’s on voters making what WE think is the right choice…

    I personally am touched by the help from Cambridge, Liverpool, Oxford, Herefordshrie, London, Sheffield, Bradford and other LibDems: together we can change our communities.

    GAME ON!
