    Like so many other people, I joined the Lib Dems last year, just after the election. One of the main reasons for joining was that I am (and always have been) very pro-EU and I wanted to stand up for that. Once I knew that we were going to have a referendum, I started dreaming about being on a street stall, getting the pro-EU message out.

    There will be another "Britain Stronger In Europe" stall on Saturday, 23 April, from 10.30 am -12.00 noon.

    This is St George's Day - an ideal day to get the message out that Britain is Stronger in Europe.

    The stall will be in the Market Place, outside the Town Hall. Saturday is a market day, popular with shoppers, so there will be lots of opportunities to engage with voters.

    There are loads of unknown benefits to our membership of the EU, for instance did you know it was the EU who brought in rules to ban lead in petrol? Likewise, it was the EU who banned smoking in workplaces?

    It's fair to say that the UK government could have done these things, but they didn't; never mind which political party was in no. 10 they could have brought in these rules and didn't.

    May 14th is Action Day

    Lib Dems from across the Region‎ are being urged to join Lib Dems throughout the country in the biggest street stall event - ever!

    We have supported cross party stall events and worked to boost the Stronger IN campaign. On Saturday May 14th we want to make it the day that the Lib Dems underline our credentials as the Pro Europe Party. We hope to see Lib Dem street stalls in every city, town and village throughout the Country.

    Erewash Lib Dems are organising a Stronger IN leafleting event on Saturday 23rd April.

    We will be spending time in sunny (we hope) Long Eaton to spread the pro-EU message and hand out some Stronger IN leaflets. If you have some free time, we would love your company and help.

    We will be meeting up at 10am in the town centre outside the British Heart Foundation and should finish around 12 noon.

  • In Together Leaflet PreView - Broxtowe

    Based on feedback from the public, I decided to design a leaflet with a really upbeat message full of the benefits of EU membership, as a contrast to 'Project Fear'.

    I'm going to be placing an order for loads of these leaflets in about a week's time. They are double-sided full-colour A4 on 135gsm paper, matte finish. These will cost £20 per thousand unfolded (+£5 for folding), which is about half the price of the ones from HQ which, I believe, are not as good.
