I have been honoured to represent you over the last seven years, and am so proud of all that we have achieved together. But now it's time to make sure we can continue our work fighting for Wirral's future, and we have just 6 weeks to do it. This will undoubtedly be an incredibly close run election in Wirral South, and if we are going to win this seat for Labour we will need all of your help over the coming weeks. 

So, that means knocking on doors, making phone calls and delivering leaflets to constituents.

To kick off, this weekend we will be holding phone-banking sessions in our office at 99 New Chester Road, New Ferry, all day Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm.

Monday (24th) marks our official start, and the opening of our brilliant new campaign office, from which all further sessions will be run. Come and join us to launch the campaign to win Wirral South as a team, and start how we mean to go on! The opening will be at 5.15 pm, at 57 New Chester Road, New Ferry. We will have tea, cake, a chance to meet fellow volunteers and local Labour members and get to know each other before the campaign really gets underway, and then we will all head out together to knock on some doors and meet the constituents we need to vote Labour!

Every day from 25th April to polling day, we will have door-knocking sessions running from the new campaign office at 57 New Chester Road. I will be at as many of these sessions as I possibly can, so I look forward to meeting people on the doors in our neighbourhood with you.

They will run at the following times: 
11am-12.30pm
1.30pm-3pm
3.30pm-5pm
6pm-7.30pm




Finally, if you would like to help but are unable to campaign with us, you can donate to help fund our efforts here:  



I am so grateful to have all of you ready and willing to help elect a Labour MP for Wirral South once again. It is always close here, but now more than ever we need to work as a team to speak to as many people as we can, it is by far the best way to win and make sure Wirral's voice is heard in parliament. 

Please feel free to share this with any friends who support our campaign!


Very best,

Alison

Let's win again

I have been honoured to represent you over the last seven years, and am so proud of all that we have achieved together. But now it's time to make sure we can continue...

You will be aware that Theresa May has now gone back on her repeated promises not to call a General Election and said that on June 8, the country will go back to the polls.

In Wirral South we have a strong, mobilised membership who speak to our residents on the doorstep or telephone, deliver leaflets, and carry out lots of other hard work every election, which has kept Wirral South Labour since 1997, defying the national swing.

And I have to ask for your help again. Only together can we make sure this country has a Brexit plan that benefits the whole country. Only together can we let the people of Wirral South know that we have a plan that will give opportunities to the young people of our area. With your help, we can let the Government know that they have to back local businesses, from Unilever and Vauxhall Motors to small businesses on our high streets, and not cut us off from our most important trading partners.

We’ll be running campaigning sessions four times a day at 11am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm and 6pm from Tuesday April 25. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time, someone will be there to explain how it all works. 

So there are three things I need you to do.

  1. If you can’t get to a polling station on the June 8, register for a postal or proxy vote. You can get all the information on how to do that here.
  2. Sign up to the campaign here Let me know if you can help by emailing me at alison@alisonmcgovern.org.uk.
  3. Put up a garden board or poster in your window. You may still have one from 2015 or if not, sign up for one at alison@alisonmcgovern.org.uk and we’ll get either to you as quickly as possible.

General Election: Three things I need you to do

The shocking events of the night of Saturday 25 March are still being absorbed by the community of New Ferry.

An explosion caused injuries to those who were in the vicinity of the incident, people’s homes have been affected which left residents unable to access their belongings and local businesses have had to come to terms with the damage caused to the their buildings which they rely on to trade.

As I live in New Ferry, I was on the scene during the night and witnessed the destruction and the horror that the explosion caused. I want to praise the emergency services for their rapid response to the incident and their continued work on the site.

In the days that followed came an overwhelming response of kindness from people who donated items to those who were left displaced from their homes.

People have also been donating money in response to the terrible event. To all those who have helped and continue to do so I want to say thank you.

What I have seen in the last week has been an inspiring community spirit and people pulling together during this challenging time.

Since the incident there have been meetings held for the traders and residents to provide them with updates and there have been advice hubs set up for those affected which offer advice on various matters.

Whilst some normality has been restored to New Ferry with some people now being able to access their homes and businesses obviously there will be a lot of work needed to be done in the future to rebuild the town centre as some of the buildings have been badly damaged.  

I have asked Theresa May at Prime Minister’s questions what help the government can offer to help with the process of rebuilding New Ferry and she has offered to assist. A meeting has been arranged for myself and the Secretary of State for Communities and Local government.

My thoughts continue to be with those injured and the residents and businesses that have been affected.

The whole community response has been something I am very proud of.
