    How we win and how you can help - open to all members

    glyn.jpgOur Local Party Organiser, Glyn Ley, will be running a training and information event for all local Liberal Democrat members who are interested in knowing how we campaign and what it is YOU can do to get involved. This event is aimed at all South Gloucestershire Liberal Democrat members, old and new, and with any level of experience. 

    In May the West of England faces its first Metro Mayor election in the West of England, where we are campaigning to elect Stephen Williams. But we also have crucial elections for South Gloucestershire Council, town and parish councils in 2019, and then straight into the General Election campaign in 2020. 

    Every volunteer activity has an important role to play, however modest. With some assistance from some esteemed colleagues, including Glyn will be covering all the things it will take to win these crucial elections - from standing for election yourself right through to delivering leaflets or entering data onto a computer - and how every job plays its part in our campaign as a whole.
