Merton Green Party enjoyed some enlightening conversations with residents in Colliers Wood this weekend. Kenneth, Charles, Harriet and team knocked on over 250 doors, which is a record for Merton Green Party. A good few people said that they would give us, or were open to giving us, one or more of their three votes!
Around a third of all the homes in Colliers Wood have had their doors knocked at over recent weeks by Merton Green, which is an incredible feat. Many residents expressed frustration with the council. One person called them 'inert', and there is widespread dissatisfaction with the outsourcing of waste management to Veolia, and with the outsourcing of the management of our green spaces to idverde.
There are still opportunities to join our wonderful team of canvassers, who hope to reach out to as many voters as possible before the local election on 3rd May. Kenneth says, "we've had so many positive responses I reckon we've been successful in showing Colliers Wood residents that we care about them."
If anyone out there is interested in helping out with the canvassing in Colliers Wood, please contact Kenneth at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07807 116562. We would love to hear from you.
