Hope not Hate and Canvassing in Tingley

Last weekend I joined ‘Hope not Hate’ campaigners from across Leeds, and local party members, to deliver leaflets about Remembrance Day to thousands of households in Ardsley and Robin Hood.

People from across the Commonwealth have made an important contribution to the past wars our country has fought in – often going into battle shoulder to shoulder with our own troops.

Local veterans I have talked to speak with pride of the solidarity that grew between themselves and soldiers from other nations that supported our forces.

And yesterday we were out campaigning again in Tingley, with all three local Councillors. Fortunately the rain held off until the afternoon!

We picked up a problem with rubbish being dumped off Westerton Road, which has been made worse by the bin strike that is affecting the whole of Leeds.

It’s understandable that local people are angry. The Council have powers to deal with anti-social behaviour like littering and fly-tipping – we will be in touch with them to make sure they take action where they should.

Thanks to everyone that turned out, and as always, if you’d like to join us you can email me at ed@edballs.com to find out about the next session.
