Grassroots – Down the Farm

The Shadow Communities Secretary Hilary Benn joined the Labour Party candidate for Redcar, Anna Turley on a visit to Westfield Farm  in Dormanstown, Redcar earlier today. The farm is a community training and resource centre that offers advice, guidance and training helping people get back into work.

The visit to a key marginal seat comes ahead of what is predicted to be the closest fought General Election for decades and which takes place on May 7.

Grassroots – Redcar (II)

As the days between now and the General Election in May gradually slip away the pre-election machines are starting to increase their activities in the marginal areas where a guaranteed victory in the polls might not be as forthcoming as in some other areas. Redcar on Teesside is one of these seats and after a couple of recent visits to the area by Labour MP’s it was time for the party leader Ed Miliband to come to town.

During the visit to Redcar and Cleveland College he addressed members of the public in a People’s Question Time event where following a short introductory speech by the Labour Party candidate for Redcar and Cleveland Anna Turley, he took part in a question and answer session before sitting and chatting with a few of the attending visitors.

 

I was on assignment for Getty Images covering the event and below are a selection of some of the pictures from the visit edited into black and white. Colour versions are available on the Getty Images website… HERE

Grassroots – Redcar

As I continue with my #Grassroots coverage of the political parties as they ramp up their activities on the road to the General Election this coming May I once again headed out with Anna Turley, the Labour Party candidate for Redcar and Cleveland and some of her team as they went door to door in Redcar around the West Dyke Road area to speak to residents.

Anna was joined by Labour Shadow Health Minister Liz Kendall MP who came up from Leicester to help support the team and after chatting to the party members in a local pub about some of the issues facing the party she joined them as they headed out onto the streets…

A few of the pictures are below and further links to previous #Grassroots features I’ve shot can be seen at the bottom.

Labour’s Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls MP visited the Cotswold Manufacturing factory in Stockton-on-Tees today. The visit aimed to highlight Labour’s economic plans for better prosperity in the North-east of England. During the tour of the facility he was accompanied by Louise Baldock, Labour’s candidate for Stockton South and together they met with employees from the company who produce a range of doors, door kits and frames for commercial, residential, leisure and education sectors of the construction industry.

Here’s  few from the job…
