    Hi, here in Leeds there is a Facebook Group called “Don’t ban drinking on Hyde Park” which was set up following a proposal to bring in a DPPO on a local park which is frequented amongst others by the large nearby student population.

    The Lib Dem Councillors are against the proposals (because the police have indicated that they would implement such a policy as a blanket ban rather than singling out those causing problems.) and were against it before the group was set up I hasten to add!

    Anyway, the point is that this group was set up by a couple of students and now has nearly 2000 members. If nothing else, it provides us with reassurance that our stance on this issue is the popular (and we would like to think) correct one.

  • Christopher @4: the party’s got an introductory guide to using Facebook. It’s on the extranet, or drop me an email ([email protected]). I’m sure there’s scope for further guides on the subject too, so feedback on what else should be covered would be most welcome.
