Sandwell Lib Dem meeting


Dear Friends

I'm delighted that we've been able to organise another meeting for 18 June - thanks to Nigel Fearn for finding a new venue for us to test out. Hopefully you've been following our website and social media feeds, so you may be aware quite a bit has been happening here in Sandwell. 

Since our last local event, a few of us attended the Southport Spring Conference and more recently, Kevin (your treasurer) and I attended the Green Lib Dem 30th Anniversary Conference in Nottingham.  I've also been out and about banging the drum for the LibDems in all manner of places during the local elections!

As for the local elections earlier this month, we only fielded two candidates, I stood in Old Warley, and Rob Johns stood in Cradley and Old Hill.  It would be great to have more candidates to stand next year, so please let us know if you're interested.

 

Our meeting on 18 June will include brief reports from our Treasurer and Secretary, and here's an outline agenda, but please let me know if there's anything else you wish to discuss.

- how to organise ourselves for next year's elections - let's field more candidates
- newsletter updates and GDPR
- discussion about Lion Farm Playing Fields which has made the news lately:

This is a great opportunity for you to get to know each other and see how you can spread the Lib Dem message in Sandwell.

WHEN
Monday 18 June - 6.30 to 8.30pm

WHERE
Wood Lane Community Centre, 157 Wood Lane, West Bromwich, B70 9PT

Please can you let us know if you can attend by emailing sandwelllibdems@gmail.com, and do let us know if you have any accessibility issues.   If you'd like to attend, but don't have transport, please let me know and we'll try to arrange something.  Also, if you know anyone who isn't yet a member, but might be interested in joining us, please encourage them to come along!

On behalf of the committee, I very much look forward to welcoming you all on 18 June.

PS - If you can't wait until our meeting and are free this Saturday, why not attend the Spring Into Action event in Stratford - hopefully we'll have some members attending.  If you can make it, please contact Jennifer Gray at training@wmlibdems.org for further details.
