Election debrief Monday June 19th at Medway Centre, 7.30pm

Agenda here. We announced officer roles for election at the AGM and delegates for Conference.

The draft general election report distributed or you can read the final version here:

election report final

Campaigning roles have been introduced as well as elected officers.

AGM next month, July 17th 7.30pm, NEW venue:

MS Therapy Centre Bradbury House, Mayfield Rd, Huntingdon PE29 1UL

Phone: 01480 458688

All welcome but only members in good standing can vote. That means members for 12 months with subs paid up to date. We will vote for new officers and perhaps appoint people to new campaign roles. List of officers to be elected and campaign roles here.

Meet Dr Nik Johnson

Nik was our Parliamentary Candidate again, as he did so well in 2015 beating the Lib Dems into fourth place behind UKIP, and gaining 10,000 votes. This time he nearly doubled his score to 18,000. Next time, the bing win – and not too long now. Mr Djanogly’s habit of using his phone to contradict a constituent at the St Ives hustings and to look at a picture of attractive young women on it during a Parliamentary debate will surely get him out at the next election.

2017 County Council elections

Nik Johnson will be campaigning hard in the much bigger new Huntingdon North ward – up from 4000 to 7000 voters, the new voters mostly from Huntingdon East and Huntingdon Central. We will need to make a major effort to make sure that Nik is elected, but with the new ward boundaries this is now a winnable seat.

2017 Mayoral election

Kevin Price has been chosen as our candidate for the Mayor of the new Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority. Election in May as with local elections. https://kevin4mayor.com/

2017 Local elections

Huntingdon has made two nominations for prospective Labour Mayor for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The nominated candidates were Nik Johnson, our very successful candidate for MP who got an unheard of 10,000 votes for labour in 2015,  and Fiona Onasanya, who has campaigned with us in St Neots.

Nik has also been selected to represent Labour as County Councillor candidate for the ‘winnable’ new seat of Huntingdon North.

Both elections will be in May 2017. If Nik and/or Fiona succeed in being nominated by more than one constituency party or affiliated group, all members will be able to vote for one of them for Labour Mayor candidate on 9th January. Other Labour prospects are our Youth Officer, Samuel Sweek, plus Ed Murphy and Ansar Ali from Peterborough and Kevin Price from Cambridge.

Local Elections May 5th – Campaigning update

For the first time in Huntingdon our campaign is using voting records and promises as the basis for our campaign in Huntingdon North. We can target voters, Labour voters, postal voters and older voters, and have been doing so with a team of doorsteppers out in all weathers. So far we have identified Labour voters in half of Huntingdon North and are doing the same in the rest of the Ward this weekend. We have delivered 2000 newsletters about the Police and Crime Commissioner (vote Dave Baigent) and the NHS, and calling cards and leaflets about Patrick Kadewere to voters who lean to Labour.

In the wider District and County elections we have approved candidates for every seat contested, and the two target seats of Eynesbury and Godmanchester have their own campaigns led by Nik Johnson and Samuel Sweek. We also have a presence in St Ives thanks to the efforts of Phil and Annie Sly.

Next weekend we will target postal voters, as they will get their ballot forms on April 20th, and then it will be a big effort to persuade our supporters to go out and vote to make a crucial difference to the politics in this district.

First 2016 Training Bulletin

Welcome to our first Training Email of the New Year, we have a bumper edition today, providing you with a range of campaign information, training support and updates that will support the work of local role holders, elected members, key campaigners and those who would like to get involved in their CLP.

In this week’s bulletin:

  • Rail campaign update
  • NEC Development Fund
  • Online training schedule
  • Telephone number look-up deadline 
  • Labour In For Britain update
  • Ethnic Minority Summit
  • Latest print news and templates
  • New number to contact Labour

Rail Campaign

Today has been our rail campaign day. Across the country Labour Party members and supporters have been campaigning outside rail stations as commuters return to work facing yet another rail fare hike.

Since 2010 rail fares have rocketed 25 per cent – three times faster than wages. This fare hike provides an important opportunity for us to highlight the Tories’ failure on rail; increased fares and under investment leading to transport chaos and cost to the travelling public.

This campaign is also an important opportunity to highlight Labour’s alternative plan. Labour’s policy is to bring the railways back into public ownership, delivering investment in a 21st century rail infrastructure, fairer fares and a stronger voice for passengers.

We have produced a number of resources to help you campaign on this issue in the coming weeks:

Rail Fares Campaigning 4 January- update and new campaign pack
The Tories are hitting passengers with eye watering fare increases. Since 2010, fares have risen by 25 per cent on average, three times faster than wages.
Many people will return to work after Christmas on Monday 4 January and it’s an opportunity to talk to commuters about this important issue.

Getting more members

A message from Phil Sly, Hunts CLP Vice Chair Membership

Dear Campaigner,

Today’s bulletin looks ahead to an action-packed week which concludes with our Missing Million National Campaign Weekend.

We start the week with three great online training sessions; tomorrow night we have an introductory session on ‘getting to grips with MemberCentre’, for all our CLP Secretaries and Membership Officers.  This ties in with our Wednesday night session on ‘growing and developing your team’, as part of our ‘growing our movement’ mini series.  Then on Thursday evening we pick up our Councillor series with ‘campaigning as a Council Candidate’.  For further details, please see below.

In this week’s bulletin:
Missing Million National Campaign Weekend
Stop the Tax Credit Cut Campaign
Print News
Autumn online training schedule

Missing Million National Campaign Weekend

This weekend is our Missing Million National Campaign Weekend; why not join Labour Party members up and down the country? The aim of the Missing Million campaign is to identify people who haven’t registered to vote and motivate them to register. One million people are set to be removed from the electoral register this year, so this campaign could have a crucial effect on local elections next year.

Join us on our National Campaign Weekend from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 October! Organise a campaign activity with your CLP, or add your postcode to events.labour.org.uk to find out what is happening locally.

Your local party can get involved by organising a voter registration campaign session:

  • You can now use Contact Creator to generate lists of residents who are no longer on the register, which you can use to organise a door-knocking session to go and ask them to register. Guidance about how to use this functionality will be available on the front page of Contact Creator from Tuesday morning.
  • Have voter registration forms available, but ask the resident to use their smartphone or tablet to register immediately, as activists must not collect completed registration forms. Use gov.uk/register-to-vote
  • Download our Missing Million campaign pack –  it is full of information and resources to support local activity.
  • Order some voter registration leaflets in time for your campaign session from the Campaign Shop or download a riso version
  • Use this as an opportunity to get new members involved – why not call them up and ask them to join you at the campaign session?
  • Share your campaign on social media with our graphics on the Campaign Resource Centre and tweet your photos on the day using #MissingMillion

We also hosted a special online training webinar last Wednesday, and you can listen again at members.labour.org.uk/resources-for-organisers

Stop the Tax Credit Cut campaign

#StopTheTaxCreditCut, resources and webinar

In April 2016, around 3 million families will be affected by a tax credit cut that will leave working families £1,300 worse off on average.

Upgrading Supporters to Members on the Doorstep

  • Introduce yourself and if you have a role within the local party a brief explanation.
  • Explain you are visiting because they signed up as a supporter during the leadership election
  • Ask why they signed up as a supporter – referencing the huge excitement and membership surge, as we’ll be trying to get the feeling of optimism in the meeting, and it could be a good way to relate to people
  • Ask if they have considered membership to the party

Listen to any objections – try to counter the objections once the supporter has finished. If they have a specific issue and offer to pass details onto the relevant office (council or CLP)

  • Explain benefits and also it is their choice how active they would like to be
  • If they would like to join sign them up – Make sure you have the relevant forms with you, or a paper with details of the website and phone number to make signing up as easy as possible
  • They could be reluctant to join as a member but want to be involved in local campaigns – encourage this. Let them know when meetings are – explain that they have no voting rights, but are very welcome to attend and share their views and idea.
  • Ask if they would like to be kept up to date on local campaigns/issues that the CLP and/or branch are getting involved in.
  • Let them know about the local meetings – encourage the supporter to attend – once they have been to local meetings and meet like-minded people they may be more inclined to join

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO LISTEN TO THE SUPPORTER!

Monthly meetings

An amazing new surge of energy for Huntingdonshire Labour Party has manifested itself in unprecendented turnout at monthly meetings since the election.

The focus now is getting people to register to vote despite Tory attempts to deregister young people and those in temporary accommodation. Tory gerrymandering of ward boundaries is also a threat.

Huntingdon Riverside Gala

ScreenHunter_139 May. 22 11.04

6th June 2015

The Huntingdon Riverside Gala may not be quite as famous as the Durham Miners Gala but in the history of Huntingdon Labour Party we can mark it down as the start of when we all came back ready to stand up again following the terrible result of May 7th. Refreshed and reinvigorated by 2 weeks of down time and impressed with a fantastic turnout at our Annual General Meeting it is time to gird our loins and  start to build on our local successes. So here it is a rallying call for support . We set up a stall at the Riverside Gala in Huntingdon Riverside Park on the  6th of June. As suggested at the meeting and possibly inspired by the immortal words ” Libraries gave us  power ” as written on the wall of Newport Library in Wales – we celebrated all things literary and ran a second hand book stall. We raised £20 which is not much but we had a presence there and managed to share some fine books.

Well done Nik – a great achievement to get so many Labour votes in Huntingdon on May 7th 2015

We had a great post-election meeting despite the disappointing news – but successful candidate Leedo George came up with another memorable cake.
