Vote for Education – Thursday June 8th

Date:08 Thu Jun 2017 - 7:00

Location: At a polling booth near your home from 7am until 10pm

Please ensure you vote for education on June 8th.

Fylde NUT members have been busy campaigning to make school budget cuts high on the agenda in this general election. We have succeeded in getting a pledge from ALL Fylde candidates. What they signed YES to is “I promise to oppose cutting per-pupil funding in real terms for schools in Fylde compared to 2015/16.” We believe that Fylde is the only constituency in the country where this has happened. However, nationally the figures so far are Con: 1% | LD: 44% | Green: 54% | Lab: 59% of candidates.

In the last days before June 8th, we are moving the focus to Lytham St. Annes with a new A5 flyer, click here and another press release, click here.

To continue to press all the Fylde candidates in the General Election on the issue, click here. The more emails then get the more they will realise how important this issue is.

This continues the work done before half term. There was an advert which went to all homes in the Kirkham and Wesham area, please click here  calling a meeting in the local community centre.

Retired members leafleted many primary schools in that area as parents collected their children  with an A5 flyer,  click here.

We held a stall in the centre of the town on a Saturday and leafleted there. See photo here.

Since the Wesham meeting, we have issued a press release. For a press report in the Gazette click here. For the press release itself click here.
