Our local key seat needs you!

The Twinning Weekend 10 – 13 April

As we move in to the final weeks of the campaign, the work we do on the ground in our Key Seats becomes more and more crucial. These are the seats that will determine whether or not we have a Labour government on May 8th – the stakes couldn’t be higher. That’s why we’re having a national campaign weekend, running this Friday to Monday, dedicated to twinning, in which we’re asking everyone to campaign in their twinned key seat.

 Read on for details of this weekend's campaigning, Exeter hustings and how to join the audience of broadcast debates......
