On Sunday April 7th, Councillor Angeliki Stogia was joined by Afzal Khan MP and a group of local Labour supporters on a beautiful spring day in Alexandra Park, to launch her campaign for the local election to be held on Thursday 2nd May.
“Thank you to everyone who came along to help me kick off my campaign” said Angeliki. “There’s a lot of uncertainty and disillusionment with politics at the moment, especially to do with Brexit. But I don’t want to lose sight of the things that matter – listening to local residents, supporting local volunteers, and doing my best to make things better here in Whalley Range”.
Afzal Khan, Member of Parliament for Manchester Gorton (which covers most of this ward) is inviting all Whalley Range residents to an informal ‘Meet your MP’ coffee morning. It will take place on Saturday 16 March at 10.30am (until 12 noon), and the venue is St Edmund’s Church Hall, Alexandra Road South, M16 8EZ – between Mayfield Rd and Range Rd. You will have an opportunity to raise your views and concerns to your representative in Parliament, as well as to local councillors who will also be present.
This Saturday 21st at 10.30am, please come along to Whalley Range Labour’s Women’s Coffee Morning to meet with your three local Labour councillors and your Member of Parliament.
Mary, Aftab, Angeliki and Afzal will be hosting an informal coffee morning to give local women a chance to listen to the issues their councillors and MP have been working on, both locally and nationally, on behalf of the people of Whalley Range. But most importantly, this will be a chance for local women to share their views and concerns, so that their local representatives can understand how best to represent them.
It’s on Saturday 21st April from 10.30 am to 12 noon at Manley Park Community Play Centre (York Ave, Whalley Range, M16 0AS). Tea and coffee will be served and children are welcome, but please note this is a women only event. The organiser is Marcia Hutchinson, Women’s Officer for Whalley Range Branch Labour Party.
Whalley Range Labour Party members and supporters popped into Alexandra Park on Sunday along with Afzal Khan MP to join the three Labour candidates for this year’s local elections – Aftab Razaq, Angeliki Stogia and Mary Watson – and kickstart Labour’s election campaign in earnest.
Because of the boundary changes, all the councillors are up for election this year. You have three votes – vote for Aftab, Angeliki and Mary and help keep Manchester a strong Labour city.
