Call for Help - Action Day in Matlock, March 4th

Derbyshire County Council will be holding crucial elections in May this year and we need your help.

The last elections were held in 2013, and coming at the nadir of our Party's popularity due to the Coalition, were not kind to us. This time however, our Party is on the up, with a steady stream of by-election victories with huge swings in areas like Tupton, Staveley, Mosborough in Sheffield and Brinsworth in Rotherham.

The tightest contest in Derbyshire will be in Matlock. A Lib Dem seat for over 30 years - but in 2013 Labour squeaked in by 26 votes, or 0.6%. We want to win this seat back.

We will be holding an Action Day in Matlock on 4th March 2017, based from Martin and Sue Burfoot's house at 12 Megdale, DE4 3JW, starting from 10am and going on through the day (lunch/refreshments will be provided) - please come for however long or short a time as you can manage.

We will have a tabloid style newspaper to deliver and if you'd like to try canvassing there will be groups going out. The day will be a great opportunity to learn new skills and meet fellow Lib Dems from a wide area. If you haven't done something before full training will be given.

Please let Martin and Sue Burfoot know whether you can attend by emailing DerbyshireDales@eastmidslibdems.org.uk, joining the Facebook event page or ringing 01629 584301.

Many thanks

Sue and Martin Burfoot
