A 46% share majority, nearly a thousand votes, on a 33% turnout (around 4 points above the city average). The Conservatives came last.
Celebrated the nature of the win in my speech, but also pointed out how badly the Conservatives had cone across the city, and it was time they spoke up for Nottingham rather than supporting the direction of government money to Surrey.
Also thanked the many helpers, organised by Terry and Eunice Regan.
Meadows Art Gallery celebrated its 10th anniversary with a “best of” exhibition and a visit from the Lord Mayor. Lilian Greenwood MP turned up too, along with former minister John Denham, before moving on to meet residents near the Meadows Embankment tram stop.
Rehearsing bus services, the needs of the boating community, road safety, cycle lanes, tow paths litter and rough sleeping, oh and Brexit. With Lilian Greenwood MP, and Councillors Sam Webster and Georgia Power.
Over 100 attended; attendance was higher this year than last; in parts cos some events merged with the one since this Sunday is the 27th and the actual Memorial Day. But perhaps more cos of concern about how the intense exchanges on social media carry on. Meanwhile, remember Heather Heyer.
Lilian Greenwood met a mixture of members, community activists, leaflet deliverers and residents, from The Meadows and elsewhere. Thanks to Nicola Heaton, Jane Jeoffrey who organised the room and the drinks, and Craig Stanley who took the pictures. Lilian spoke on visits to Royal Mail and Welbeck school, and the policies of their Tomorrow party who’d just won in an election exercise. Higher res. photos available.
