Newham For Change Social

Picture from Saturday. We didn't win the referendum on ending the Mayoral model in Newham but we came close
  • for the directly elected mayor: 45,960 (56%) 
  • for the committee system: 36,424 (44%)

However, this was the first proper summer social I had been to since 2019 and it was great to meet people again at such a lovely venue to eat, drink (and most importantly - gossip!).

Some of us will be launching a new campaigning group on promoting democracy in local government. We will also offer help and assistance to those opposed with the attempt to bring in an executive Mayoral model in Croydon Council during their referendum in October.
