MEET THE TEAM

Shouldn’t politics just be about people meeting, talking, and taking action together? There are some good politicians in this city, making a difference: present and visible in their communities, listening, and working with local people. We need that here in ‘Hunslet and Riverside’.

So, we’re out and about year-round in the community – at meetings, in cafes and pubs, at events, and more. And we’re especially keen to make ourselves available ahead of elections, so people know who and what they’re voting for.

Here’s a list of times and places we’ll be in the coming weeks. Note: we’ll keep updating this list, so please watch this space – and we’re very open to invitations! And/or please get in touch anytime. If we get elected, we’ll hold weekly public drop-ins around the ward. Speak/meet soon?
