Vote for Cllr Kevin Price who is standing for election as Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Your Romsey Councillors have worked hard to develop a plan for improving the site at the end of Cavendish Road and outside the Coop.  The agreement comes after a number of meetings in which local stakeholders views were taken on board and a public consultation.  

Both sites will have an underlying railway theme to celebrate the considerable part that Romsey played housing the people who managed, maintained and provided a rail service from Cambridge.

This has taken a long time - in fact at a meeting of the East Area Committee in 2013, before he was elected, Dave Baigent publicly argued 'it would seem appropriate to provide one or more meeting points and the idea of a town square involving quality paving and seating'.

Plans are also going ahead to commission a piece of art to go on the site at the end of Cavendish Road.

Romsey Labour are here to represent the people of Romsey and to do this we have to know what they want.  There are a number of ways this is done:

  • we knock on peoples doors and talk to them (canvassing). 
  • we hold meet and great stalls (mainly outside the Coop on Mill Road)
  • we attend local events (we run a stall at The Winter Fair and the proceeds are donated to Romsey Mill).
  • we live in the area
  • we deliver leaflets about our work
  • we answer emails, letters and telephone calls
  • we support local and national causes and demonstrations
  • we hold monthly ward meetings and mid monthly catch ups

In outcome we hope to help people and our community

Canvassing

We aim to knock on everyone's door at least three times a year and whilst this does not mean we meet everyone it gives us a clear idea of the important issues in Romsey.  For most of the year this is carried out on a Saturday or Sunday when we go out as a group to target specific roads.  As we get closer to elections we increase our door knocking to a point when we are out everyday. Canvassers include our four councillors and members of the Romsey Labour Party and training is given to anyone who wants to join us.  Without this important contact we would not be able to do our job properly and we always need more people to help.

People often think that canvassing is stressful, but its not like that at all.  Almost without exception people in Romsey recognise the need for politicians to talk to the public and are prepared to take part in short debates on their doorstep.  People appreciate rather than resent these interactions and when they are busy they politely say so.  This week we canvassed in Great Eastern Street.

Meet and great stalls

You will probably have seen us outside the Coop on a Saturday morning.  Sometimes we are there with a special message, often about a local issue or the NHS.  We try to do this once a month and it is a very good way of taking the pulse in Romsey.

Leaflets

Most of you will have seen our leaflets.  In these we try to capture national, citywide and local issues.  As we get closer to the election the amount of leaflets increase and they provide a way for Labour to set out its stall.  We always need help in delivering leaflets so please get in touch if you can spare 30-40 minutes every six weeks or so.

 

Attending local events

Each year Romsey Labour runs a stall at the Mill Road Winter Fair and all the proceeds are donated to Romsey Mill.  This year we had a 'gorilla'

 Helping people and our community:

  • with planning problems
  • we help with communications for people living in dire circumstances
  • we help with the design of local improvements
  • raising issues with council officers
  • we raise issues that are of major concern in regard to safety
  • we raise issues with the head of Cambridge's policing
  • we raise issues with the Police and Crime Commissioner
  •  

Supporting local and national causes and demonstrations
