Join us for our monthly street campaigning event supporting our efforts to get Alison Teal re-elected in Nether Edge & Sharrow ward in May. Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas MP will join us in the morning.
There will be two sessions, one starting at 10.15am and another starting at 1.40pm, with a vegetarian lunch provided in between – see details below. Please come for both sessions if you can, but come for one if you can’t manage both. Please sign up so we know you are coming and can plan for numbers.
Two ways you can help on the day:
-Knocking on doors to talk to as many local residents as possible, working closely in groups with experienced people who will guide anyone new or inexperienced
-Delivering leaflets to addresses in the area in pairs.
Morning session – Please arrive by 10.15am at Sharrow Old Junior School at the Sharrow Lane end of South View Rd, S7 1DB.
Afternoon session – Please arrive by 12.50pm (if you want lunch) or 1.40pm (if you don’t want lunch) at 18 Priory Rd, S7 1LW (Off Sharrow Lane), which is a Sheffield member’s house.
Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Bring a small back pack for carrying leaflets), a pen and (if you have one) a mobile phone.
Travel to the venues above:
Bus services 97 and 98 from the city centre run along London Road.

Get off the bus at the corner of London Rd and Alderson Rd; and walk to the morning venue (5-7 mins) or the afternoon venue (10-12 mins).
