Labour is the only political party in Plymouth to create its manifesto via an open process. Today, we kicked off our open manifesto process with an ideas meeting at Tothill Community Centre.

Contribute you ideas

Over the past three months we have been collecting ideas for our manifesto from a variety of sources:

  • New Labour members at our new members open day
  • From the tens of thousands of leaflets sent out around the city
  • From our online survey
  • From our open manifesto meetings
  • From sitting Labour Councillors and the Plymouth City Council cabinet
  • From organisations and businesses in Plymouth via Labour Councillors
  • From social media

Thank you to everyone who has contributed ideas. We've had hundreds of suggestions ranging from how we can build more houses in Plymouth to how we can celebrate the diversity and history of our city more as we approach Mayflower 2020.

If you haven't contributed your ideas yet you can do so online here.

Plymouth Labour has kicked off the local election campaign for 2016 with Tudor Evans' 1001 weekend where we aim to speak to just over one thousand voters across the weekend.

Sally Bowman, co-campaign co-ordinator Plymouth Moor View said:

"A big thank you to all the volunteers who have knocked on doors and campaigned for Labour this weekend. We were joined by experienced canvassers and new members right across the city from Devonport to Moor View, St Peter's to Peverell. Thank you. We have doorstep campaigning every weekend. Please come and join us."

Foodbank-Dec2015.jpg

Thank you to all the Labour Party volunteers and supporters who dropped off donations for the Plymouth Food Bank at our offices over the last month. We have just made our fourth and final delivery to the food bank dropping off Christmas snacks, long-life milk, chocolate and household essentials. 

Thank you

Cllr Mary Aspinall has been one of the team who has been co-ordinating the collection. She said:

"Thank you to everyone who has gone the extra mile to collect food for our local food bank. At this special time of year there are thousands of people in our city who are unable to afford basic food to put on the table. Christmas is a time for community and the response from our volunteers has been incredible. We have made four large deliveries to the food bank which will help hundreds of people have a slightly better Christmas. One day there won't be a need for food banks but as long as there is a need we will help and support the people who rely on them."

 

Keep the donations coming
