General election campaigning is an expensive business... Fortunately our chair Gareth Evans had the bright idea of hosting a Eurovision party on Saturday for local members. Everyone had a fantastic time - good food, good drink and for once the UK's entry scored well too!
Our four candidates met the public and answered their questions at a 'Meet the candidates' event at Stratford Circus today (6 May). They'll all be campaigning throughout Newham and Barking & Dagenham throughout the rest of May and into June, so keep your eyes out for them!
Gareth Evans, chair of the Newham, Barking & Dagenham Lib Dems, said "We're really busy campaigning in the local area and across London for the last minute General Election called by Teresa May. But it's also so important not to forget the day to day needs of everyone in our community".
Less than a week after the General Election was announced, the Newham, Barking & Dagenham Lib Dems have kicked off their General Election campaigning today, with a street stall in the heart of East Village (formerly the Olympic Village), right by Westfield Stratford City.
