Ed Miliband joined with more than 200 Labour Party members for the South West Gala Dinner at the end of October.
He presented regional best practice awards to recognise
- the significant gains made in the county council elections in Dorset this year;
- the campaigns fought with local residents in North East Somerset to improve bus services and stand up against the council's proposed 40% cut to children's centres; and
- the outstanding service to the Labour Party by longstanding members Brenda Massey (Bristol North West CLP), Roger Coales (Kingswood CLP) and Kay Mills (Gloucester CLP).
It is the hard graft week-in, week-out by volunteer members and activists that delivers results for the Labour Party and for the communities we live and work in.
Ed Miliband thanked members across the region for the work they've done, and the work they will do over the next 18 months as we fight to get a Labour Government elected in 2015.
