Following the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, St Ives CLP will resume campaigning on Tuesday 13 April
We have shed-loads of leaflets to deliver … we can’t stretch to the postage … but we have willing hands and feet … but always need more!
We know that lots of us remain cautious about a return to the doorstep and so we will not ask anyone to do more than they feel comfortable with. There are lots and lots of ways to get involved both on the doors and from home so please, if you want to help us win drop us an email to find out what you can do to help.
In May there will be elections for Cornwall Council itself and all the Town and Parish Councils in our area.
This is our chance to make that change a positive one for all of us.
We need you now.
There are so many things you can do to make a difference.
This campaign is going to be different – and as tough as any we have fought – there are many things we cannot do – we’re going to have to be imaginative and improvise.
There will be no doorstepping and personal canvassing but we can still engage with our neighbours, families and friends – let’s use our social networks like we’ve never used them before.
Stand up and be counted
Being a councillor can be a challenge but you can make a difference … for the better.
At any level – Cornwall, Town or Parish – make sure that ordinary people’s voices are heard on planning, spending, services and development, youth provision and social care. This is our home … and it’s up to us how it is run.
If you’re interested in standing get in touch with our CLP Secretary, Joan Beveridge …
Talk to your family and friends
- get them to register for a postal vote themselves – and stay safe
- encourage them to vote because it does make a difference
- persuade them to vote Labour because our stories, our lives, our personal experiences need to be listened to
- we are the second party in Cornwall and our voice needs to be heard – we can make a difference.

Donate to help our campaigns
And last but by no means least …
Honestly, every little helps.
If every member gave just £2 we would have an additional £1600 to fight our election campaign.
Or buy one of our beautiful Ellen the Chough St Ives Labour mugs.
