Day of Action against Universal Credit-Saturday 1 December

Universal Credit is due to hit North Kensington in December, a community still in suffering as a result of the Grenfell tragedy.

A protest has been organised on Saturday 1st December, 2p.m. at Ladbroke Grove station, as part of Unite the Union’s National Day of Action against Universal Credit. The action has been organised locally by Unite Community branches.

We hope you can attend to show solidarity and send a message to the Government that UC is unwelcome here.

Our MP, Emma, recently wrote to the Secretary of State for Work & Pensions and is lobbying against these measures in Parliament.

Chelsea Riverside Labour Campaign Day-Sunday 2 December

The Kensington & Chelsea Labour Local Campaign Forum invites you to our next campaign day, taking place in Chelsea Riverside, one of our must-win wards in the next local elections.

It will be held this Sunday 2nd December from 10am – 1pm with a street stall to talk to and flyers to distribute to members of the public.

We will be meeting outside the World’s End Estate. Don’t worry if you’ve never been campaigning with us before, this will be an excellent chance to get involved.

Campaign Day-Sat 3 November 2018

This Saturday 3 November 2018 is a Labour Party “National Day of Action” and we would be delighted for you to join us.

We will be holding a street stall in Earl’s Court, our most marginal ward, from 10am until lunchtime where we will be talking to local residents and distributing leaflets.

We are meeting outside Earl’s Court tube station (Earl’s Court Road entrance) at 10am and erecting the stall nearby.

We were only 100 votes off winning Earl’s Court in the local elections this year so a continuous Labour presence is vital. We hope you can come and support our “shadow councillors” Bruno de Florence and Sam Batra in the ward.

North Kensington to get new secondary school

At long last, young people in North Kensington are to get a new Secondary School. The site earmarked for the non-denominational Academy with its own sports facilities is by Kensington Leisure Centre sports pitches. The Labour government’s Building School’s for the Future programme has guaranteed funding of £30 million…

Local resident and local Labour candidate Beinazir Lasharie says “for years many of our local young people have had to go to schools outside the Borough. They will go to school in North Kensington thanks to many years of lobbying by Labour Councillors and local parents”.

Yet our Liberal Democrat opponents try to claim responsibility for the new school in their newsletters. We have a track record of achievement and don’t need to take credit for others hard work. We would like to ask for them to exactly just ‘how’ they achieved what they have claimed?
