Radio 4 attend latest town centre meeting with Jack Straw

There was a great turnout at Jack Straw’s latest “shoutabout” meeting on King William Street today.┬áSome really interesting questions from shoppers, which was excellent as Radio 4’s Paddy O’Connell was there recording a piece for Broadcasting House. You can catch the programme at 9:00am tomorrow morning – or later on BBC iPlayer if you fancy a lie in.

The open air meeting followed on from a really productive campaign planning session, where we fleshed out plenty of new ideas for the coming general and local election campaigns. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date with what we’re doing over the next few months – so watch this space!
