Help Norwich make history

As many of you know due to an ongoing and ridiculous saga one third of the Norwich councillors were given the boot recently and, at a date as yet unknown, there will be a kind of super citywide by-election. While this is a complete pain in the bum it's also our chance to make history.

Right now the Greens are joint largest group with Labour (nine each) and so, if we get more councillors elected this year Norwich will be the first city in history to enjoy some kind of Green dominion.

To this end I suspect some readers would like to help make that happen. Below I copy some of the text from the official appeal for helpers;

Norwich Action Weekend:

17th & 18th JULY Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th July - 10am to 6pm, at 27 Clarendon Road, Norwich NR2 2PN

Help is needed with door-knocking local residents near the city centre area, or helping to deliver some of our new ward newsletters. Please come along and support us if you can.

Refreshments are provided for helpers, with a vegetarian lunch available between 1 and 2pm.

We now hold Action Weekends on the third weekend of every month. This month we need to get a lot of door-knocking covered, and a lot of newsletters delivered, as we will very soon be facing new local elections in Norwich.

We therefore have a good chance of becoming the largest party on Norwich City Council (and the first Green council in the country) in the next couple of months - so it's an important time to get involved.

The door-knocking sessions will begin at 10am and 2pm, and it would be helpful if you could arrive near to one of these times if possible. However, if you do need to arrive at a different time, please let us know in advance and there will be someone here to welcome you and provide you with all the necessary materials and briefing.

For more information, directions, or to offer your help, please email or phone 01603 611909.

It would be great to see you there.

Best wishes,

Ben Duffy
Norwich Green Party

More power to you, colleagues. I'll try to make it down: it makes me a good son too.
