City Branch 1st Annual Christmas Cocktails and Canapés

Monday's social event of the season went brilliantly. Guest of honour, Rt Hon Francis Maude MP, was on good form. The cocktails were great and so were the canapés! The event was well attended, everyone had a brilliant time and we made a significant amount for Party funds.

Many thanks to the main organisers Louise and Nick, and to our hosts, Bar One Ten.

Hope to see you all next year..!

My new leaflet

The new leaflet for the City Centre and Jewellery Quarter is going out now. In this leaflet, I concentrate on:

1. Postal voting. It can be far easier and more convenient to vote by post. Download the form!

2. City Centre park. The first new City Centre park for over a century is being planned, and the designers have been shortlisted.

3. Safety in the Jewellery Quarter. A network of cameras is going up, and the police are moving to a community policing approach.

4. Achievements since 2004, when the Conservative-led administration took over. Plans to double recycling, £127 million for affordable housing...

5. A short survey on issues affecting you. You can also do it online!

'But Pete, aren't you blogging tactical information, which could be useful to your opponents?' I don't care - bring it on! In fact, you can download my new leaflet here:
