More widely, post-Brexit and following the smooth transition to a new Prime Minister, we have seen a surge in membership, which is very welcome also we are running a drinks reception for new members 18th November. If you are a member (new or old) do get involved with your branch, the executive, management committee and in organising events. We'll be asking for volunteer assistance for the upcoming county council elections in May 2017. Consider also whether you would be willing to stand as an elected official, district councillor or county councillor. The more people who step forward the more choices we will have and that is good for local democracy.
