This weekend we headed to Hornsey and Wood Green to campaign with the amazing Lynne Featherstone MP. Lynne has done loads of stuff in government which we think is amazing, from pushing through equal marriage to pledging to end FGM within a generation.
Once again over 50 activists turned out to help us and we had a brilliant time. We knocked on hundreds of doors and had a great social in Highgate before finishing up in G-A-Y which was amazing as Student Pride was taking place in central London on the Saturday.
A huge thank-you to the team who helped pull the weekend together! Our next trip is to the constituency of Oxford West and Abbingdon. We'll be helping out another amazing female Lib Dem, Layla Moran and we would love you to come and join us. We are providing accommodation, provisions towards travel, food and lots of fun.
