Whilst a large part of the country has entered a period of local election fever, it will be 2023 before it is our turn in Cheshire East.
Meet our fabulous 2022 WE candidates from across the country!
It is never too early however to start preparations so we are already getting ready for next year by checking the accuracy of our member and volunteer database, in which you may have previously expressed an interest in being a branch volunteer.
When you joined the branch or signed up as a supporter for example, you wanted to share a skill or offered to undertake research to help with our campaigning. Or maybe you love the thrill of elections and want to help distribute leaflets and take part in canvassing when the time comes. Anyone who can't wait until next year is welcome to join a WE Cheshire East group on Saturday 30th April when we help WE Manchester to get Lucy Wood elected. Drop us a line at [email protected]
Whatever you have to offer, please don’t hide yourself under a bushel and especially don’t be concerned about having to make a time commitment. No-one is under any obligation. We’re just trying to create a pool of people we can potentially request help from, and you are of course completely free to decline at any time.
The more people we have in our volunteer pool, the more we can share the load, and do more for the women and girls in our region.
Take a look at the banners made by visitors to our stall for International Women's Day. Hopefully they will inspire you!
It would be great if you could let us know if our information is correct, and whether you wish to make any amendments.
If you are a member, the best way to do that is to complete our member survey.
If you are a supporter, please use our feedback form.
Or you can of course reply directly to this email.
