Around 100,000 households across Northumberland have had a post card delivered from their local councillor, or local activists this month.
The postcards are a thank you from the councillor elected and gives details of how to contact them, but in areas with no Councillor from the whole Labour Group and details of how to contract the too.
It’s also part of the Northumberland Labour survey to find out residents’ concerns and how Labour can best represent individuals and communities as they build towards the 2025 local authority elections.
Labour Group leader Scott Dickinson said: “We were disappointed with some results in the 2021 elections and especially to lose two very good candidates on the basis of straw polls which tipped the balance of power in the council to the Conservatives.
“We’re now looking forward, but we ask on the survey if people supported us or not at the last election and why that was. We need to learn from this experience, and we pledge to listen to people’s concerns.
“We hope that people take the time to complete the survey. They can either return the postcard using the Freepost address or scan the QR code on the postcard which will take them straight to the online survey.
“Depending on the numbers responding we will hope to extend this across the county. We hope to receive many responses so we get a meaningful picture of what Northumberland residents think and feel.”
