Boosting membership. 

The aim here is to bring in more like-minded people appalled and disgusted by the direction being taken by local MPs and our Government. We’re developing a system for trawling social media and other sources to find sympathisers and persuade as many of them as possible to join our campaign. If you think you may be able to spare a few hours to help with this, please email Helen

Fundraising 

As outlined above, we’re launching an online campaign to build an emergency Election Fighting Fund. But there are lots of other ways we can raise funds and use these resources to spread our message. Do you have experience or ideas in this area? Can you spare some time to help others?  Please email us for more information.

Hustings Events

Skipton & RIPOn

Candidates for the parliamentary constituency of Skipton and Ripon will be addressing potential voters at Ripon Cathedral on Thursday November 28 at 7:15pm.

The hustings will be hosted and chaired by the Dean of Ripon, the Very Rev John Dobson DL.

Representatives from the major parties will be attending; questions to be submitted before midday on November 25 to judithbustard@riponcathedral.org.uk  A number of these questions will be selected to be put to candidates at the event.

The hustings starts at 7.15pm; refreshments from 6.45pm with donations to the Swaledale and Wensleydale Recovery Fund – helping those affected by the recent flooding.

Harrogate & Knaresborough

We aim to make sure that hustings events are held in the run-up to the election and we need one or two volunteers to help organise it. We’ve previously run one in Harrogate and so have a tried and tested template plus a venue. If you can spare some time to help or know who and where hustings are being held in our contituencies, please email us
