What’s happening next?
Campaign to end Period Poverty
Suffolk Labour Group are asking the County Council to provide free sanitary protection in the County’s schools. We know that poverty and the impact of Universal Credit are driving people to food banks. Increasingly, we know that many young girls can’t afford proper sanitary protection, and they may be missing school as a result.
Ask your County Councillor to support the proposal when it comes up for voting on October 18th. You can find out more about the campaign, and a link to the ‘Write to them” website to help you access your Councillor , on the Suffolk Labour Group website.
County Council by-election in Bosmere division, 25th October.
Bosmere division straddles Constituency boundaries. Campaigning started on Sunday 7th October in Needham Market , with a team of leafleters from CSNI and Bury St Edmunds constituencies.
Barking and Somersham are part of Bosmere division. If you can help with leafleting in villages or campaigning over the next few weeks, please get in touch.
National Campaign Days
We have started campaigning this autumn in local towns and communities. The first national campaign day, following the Labour Party annual conference, took place on Saturday 29 September. We were out and about in Framlingham and Debenham, getting support for Labour’s policies to rebuild the economy and public and community services.
The next campaign day is Saturday 3rd November – just after the Budget. If you’d like to help leaflet in one of the local towns please get in touch.
CSNI Young Labour
Young LP members and supporters in and around Framlingham are planning to meet up later in the autumn to talk about the key political issues that will be shaping their future. Get in touch if you’d like to know more about this. And follow csnilabour on instagram.
