In Conversation with…

Wednesday 27 January at 6:30pm

Labour Friends of the Forces were fortunate to be joined by local councillors Owen Pritchard, Alasdair Ross, Nadia Martin and Andy Newman to discuss all things local government and how the Labour Party can better support veterans and those in the Armed Forces Community.

As either veteran themselves or a part of the Armed Forces Community, this event proved extremely popular and therefore there will be a follow-up event in due course.
