Before last year’s election, the three Whalley Range Labour councillors (Aftab Razaq, Angeliki Stogia and Mary Watson) set out some of the commitments that Labour were making for Manchester City Council in the year ahead, if they were re-elected.

Thursday is polling day across Manchester, where because of the ward boundary changes all the council seats are up for election.
This means you have three votes instead of the usual one – use them to re-elect your Labour councillors, Aftab Razaq, Angeliki Stogia and Mary Watson. Five things to remember:
- You don’t need your polling card to vote – just go to your polling station and give them your name and address
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.
