Spring has well and truly sprung and Christmas is a distant memory! The blossoms are out, the clocks have changed and the lawnmower needs fixing. Our country also needs fixing, with the government in complete chaos. Theresa May has failed to deliver any of her promises and is listening to no-one. Many people now want to get rid of the Tories and want someone who knows how to negotiate and to rebuild Britain for the many not the few. A general election could be called at any time.
Local elections are coming Thursday May 2nd
11 Worcester City Council seats are being contested. Labour currently hold 4 of them which we need to win again Arboretum, Cathedral, Nunnery & St John’s. This year we have the chance to beat a Tory in Cathedral Ward and Warndon Parish North but we need your help!

Consultation on City Centre Orders
The City Council are consulting on a proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to cover a whole range of possible offences in the city centre – urinating, feeding seagulls, aggressive begging, sitting or standing for the purposes of begging, being under the influence of drugs and legal highs, skateboarding and cycling. If the proposals are implemented, ‘offenders’ can be fined for their behaviour or given a dispersal notice or criminal behaviour order. Repeat offenders can be prosecuted and imprisoned. Labour Councillors are not supportive of this approach to ‘cleansing the High Street’.
Please respond to the public consultation and make your voice heard before 24 April – click below:
I have been working on raising my profile as Labour’s parliamentary candidate and holding the Tories to account on their record. We have had some great high profile visitors and Worcester News know that Robin Walker is not the only politician whose opinion matters! I have arranged to talk to a wide range of community leaders, unions, groups and organisations. I am canvassing in all our target wards across the city for the local elections.
Please invite me to events or community groups that you are involved with. The more Worcester people that I can get to know and talk to, the more I can represent them and spread Labour’s message of hope and renewal.
Together we can win in Worcester!
Thank you for all your support, for me personally and for the Labour Party. Imagine having a Labour City Council on 3rd May 2019! Imagine saying goodbye to the Tories!
