At the weekend the Labour team went down to Faversham to help our colleagues there campaign against the closure of the local minor injuries unit for which Labour will put forward a motion about at the next Swale Borough Council meeting.
Leader of the Swale Labour Group Mike Haywood said: ‘The ground our colleagues in Faversham gained during the County elections provided good foundations for which we want to build upon. Our team came to lend a hand to show our committment to work as team across Swale to release Swale from Tory control in 2015.’
At the same time our parliamentary candidate Guy Nicholson was campaigning with a team in Rushenden, discussing, amongst other things Labour’s energy price freeze, local jobs, GP surgery provision and the local SureStart services.
Guy said: ‘There are many issues facing communities such as Rushenden which the Coalition is making worse, there is genuine concern about many local public services being underfunded and cut back. We have growing communities, we need an MP to lobby for better public service provision and infrastructure to meet the growing demand.’
