Local events we are aware of are listed below, generally for the month ahead.

If you want to talk to volunteers from Pavilion, best to call on Tuesdays or Fridays between 11am – 4pm.

2019/20 CLP calendar:
Campaign days: Our town centre campaign stalls will be running every Saturday during the general election campaign.
GC meetings: the General Election campaign means that the remaining General Committee (‘GC’) meetings for 2019 will not go ahead. The first meetings of the GC in 2020 will be at the Friends’ Meeting House on Saturday 11 January and Saturday 15 February. As the election means that our December AGM must be postponed, the meeting on 15 February will be the CLP AGM.
Timings will vary depending on venue and whether a policy discussion is being held either before or after the GC. Normally Saturday GCs will run from 11am – 1pm and Thursday GCs usually run from 7.30pm – 9.30pm, but times can vary – especially for the CLP AGM. Delegates should always check the papers circulated for the start time of each meeting.
EC meetings: Campaign Executive Committee (‘EC’) meetings are held weekly during the General Election campaign. Otherwise, routine EC meetings are held approximately ten days before each GC. Following the General Election the EC will meet on Monday 16 December, Monday 30 December (reserve date: Thursday 2 January) and Sunday 2 February (reserve date: Monday 3 February). Subsequent meetings will depend on the calendar of GC meetings for 2020. (EC meetings normally run either from 4pm – 6pm on Sundays or 7pm – 9pm on weekdays.)
Business deadlines for branches and affiliates to table items at the GC: 11am a fortnight before the meeting date. NB: The deadline for business to be submitted for the CLP AGM remains 11am on Thursday 21 November 2019 unless or until altered by the EC. This ensures that all Labour branches have had equal nominating opportunities.
