We are taking the Euro Election very seriously:

Over the next month we have David Cameron on may 5th, in North Tyneside, then a series of Tynemouth action days and a lot of canvassing

- Mark Francois, shadow minister for Europe, in Hexham on May 15th

- Dominic Grieve, shadow minister for Justice, in Prudhoe on May 27th

Most of our time is to be spent canvassing, campaigning and leafletting both here in Hexham and in the North Tyneside Mayoralty campaign.

The last 11 days will be the key canvassing days - please feel free to come and join in - simply contact Guy or Barbara in the Hexham Office:
