County Labour chief in visit to town as campaigning reaches climax

Evesham Editorial 5th May, 2021   0

COUNTY Labour leader Coun Robin Lunn and Kuldip Sahota, Labour candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), joined local party members as campaigning for the local elections reached the final stages.

Coun Lunn joined Helen Russell and local party members in a visit to All Saints Church to view the exhibition on what has sustained residents during the pandemic and meet the organisers.

They then went to Evesham College to meet Sheila Jervis, University and Colleges Union representative, to hear about the row over the possible reduction in courses at the site.

Coun Lunn said: “We want to see existing courses preserved and provision developed, not cut. A growing town like Evesham really needs an effective college, especially at the present time, with unemployment among young people likely to rise. Good local education and training will be vital in addressing this challenge.”




Kuldip then joined the group as they visited the temporarily closed Hampton Mill footpath and met people who are regular users of the route.

Coun Lunn said: “I hope this footpath will reopen as soon as possible and I will investigate the reasons behind the closure.”
