Your Events Team is planning a regular programme of member events for 2021. Remember to check here or on social media from time to time for new events posted, and look out for the regular Members' Newsletter for details of forthcoming happenings!
We want to make all events interesting, appealing, and accessible, to as many of our members and supporters as possible, so we’ll cover a wide range of subjects: some social, some policy, some fundraising, and some good old political chin-wagging. Live venues are out of the question, at the moment, and that’s to our advantage, because everyone who has access to a computer or a phone can take part in our Zoom sessions . We will vary the days and times of meetings, though, to make them available to as many people as possible, such as parents with child-care duties or people who work different shift patterns.
Fundraising events are very important to the local party, to bring in much-needed cash to allow us to campaign and to support the staff in the office and the work they do. So, we have to sell tickets for these events but we understand that makes them inaccessible for some of our members and supporters. We have, therefore, set up a fund that will allow us to offer free places for those who would otherwise find the events unaffordable. Details can be found on the page for each event.
This is also where we promote Action Days, hustings and other campaigning events.
If you would like to add your name to our Events mailing list then signup here.
If there is a subject of local interest that you’d like to discuss, or would like to ask questions of a local Councillor or Executive Board Member, or have an idea for a fundraising event, please contact the Events Team on [email protected]. Likewise, if you think there is any way we can improve our programme, or the accessibility or diversity of our events, or if you would like to get involved in organising events, do please contact us by email: [email protected]
Join us in Kingsmead for some doorknocking with Wera Hobhouse MP and Cllr Sue Craig!
We'll be meeting at 2.45pm on Tuesday 28th September by The Circus for some door-knocking. If you've never spoken to voters on the doorstep before, the team will be able to give you guidance before you set off and pair you up with someone.
Let us know if you can make it!
Join us in Ubley on October 2nd for some surveying!
On October 2nd the Chew Valley team will be meeting at 1pm by the village church for an afternoon of surveying!
We'll be handing out our local Chew Valley survey to residents on the doorsteps. Surveying is a great way of speaking to voters outside of election time on the issues that matter most to them. When they're done filling out the survey they can put it through their letterboxes for us to come and collect a bit later.
If you've never done this before don't worry! Someone will be there to help you and no first timer has to answer a doorstep alone.
If you'd like to come along please click the RSVP button.

Join us for a chat about local politics and a delicious vegetarian lunch cooked by Dr Bharat Pankhania, Combe Down Councillor, epidemiologist and public health expert, now internationally famous for his televised advice on the pandemic.
Bharat is also an unashamed foodie, and a renowned chef and will demonstrate the cooking of a recipe, and talk to us about Gujarati cuisine, before we enjoy a tasty Sunday lunch in his wonderful garden which you'll have the opportunity to explore. We'll provide cover in case of inclement weather. There will also be a bar (donations only). Please, if you have one, bring a collapsible garden chair, and dress appropriately for an October Sunday.
Numbers are strictly limited so don't delay.
