Hello World!

June 17, 2009

This is the new blog for Loughborough Labour Students.  We had a fantastic year last year with events that included a free weekend in Brussels to visit the European Parliament, campaigning against the policies of hate of the British National Party, fighting for subsidised travel for Loughborough Students, joining a national campaign against rogue landlords, and attending a number of conferences which involved guests such as Andy Reed, Glenis Willmott, Alistair Darling, Hazel Blears, Eddie Izzard, Alastair Campbell, John Denham, Margaret Beckett and even Gordon Brown.

Next year is set to be even better with plans to visit the Welsh Assembly, the Houses of Parliament (and hopefully number 10!), the European Parliament at either Strasbourg or Luxembourg, Labour Students and Labour Party Conference and there will of course be plenty of other social events throughout the year including events with the students at nearby Nottingham University.  There will also be plenty of campaigning as well for those that enjoy that kind of thing with plans to start a new awareness campaign in cooperation with Unite the Union to ensure students are aware of their rights at work and of course, with next year being a General Election year, there will be plenty of opportunity to get involved in the local political scene.

If you’re interested in joining us in what is sure to be a fantastic year or would just like more information please feel free to email us at loughboroughlabourstudents@googlemail.com and join us on facebook

Looking forward to hearing from you!
