Out and about in Bates Avenue and Bowen Road

Tonight we have been out with our candidate Jack Sowerby canvassing Bates Avenue and Bowen Road.

We have been hearing a lot of positive messages and sadly a lot of frustration with the direction the town has taken. If we missed you and you’d like to chat let us know and we’ll pop back.

Canvassing in Haughton and Springfield

Great responses to us and our positive message on the doorsteps this evening.

Many people again saying they are fed up with their Labour Councillors here in Haughton and Springfield.
