Make a real difference in the upcoming General Election
In 2015 the Conservatives took the constituency of Gower by 0.06%. In 2017, Labour took it back with a 3.6% swing. There is a strong possibility we can turn Gower blue again in the sea of red that is South Wales, but we need your help. Our members will be canvassing regularly in the Swansea area and Gower in particular. Feel free to contact us via any medium if you are interested in lending a hand. We will be holding Snap Election training sessions for those who would like some informal canvassing practice before heading out.
