First Labour Party surgery in Whitby for a while

Councillors Rob Barnett and Gerald Dennett are holding the first Labour Party council surgery in Whitby for over a decade. Residents of Whitby are welcome to come to the Tourist Information Centre on Saturday 27 June, between 10:00 am and noon to discuss their issues with the Council and its services.

We are delighted in having a positive story about the Labour Party in the Whitby Gazette: http://www.whitbygazette.co.uk/news/local/first-labour-party-surgery-in-town-for-over-ten-years-1-7313668

We have also gained many new members and supporters.
