I’ve just come back from a busy Sunday afternoon in Trumpington Meadows and along Shelford Road, as one of a team of Labour volunteers aiming to talk to as many people as we could about the issues that matter to them.
You may have come home to find that we’ve left a leaflet at your house, and I hope you’ll get in touch to tell me about the things that concern you.
We heard people’s concerns about the quality of the new houses built at Trumpington, about the increased congestion on the roads making it harder for local residents to get around, and about the importance of reflecting global concerns about climate change in local policy – something that is very dear to my heart. Already the Labour team have passed these messages on to local councillors, and we’ll press them for answers.
We’ll be visiting every house in Trumpington ward between now and the election on May 4 2017, and I look forward to meeting and listening to many more people.
