19 June

We had an excellent gathering at the Eyre Court Hotel in Seaton on Monday evening of eleven members (one from Axminster), one prospective member and one visitor. It was agreed that raising the profile of Labour in Seaton was our immediate objective, and the Uplyme strategy of social action was endorsed. Several areas for such action were identified, but all would require wider participation by members. Julian will organise a canvass of members to establish what they suggest and how they can help. Jenny will design a leaflet for wider circulation and James will look at the cost of this. Working groups were also set up for school activities (George and Ruby) and social media (Tamsin). Regular meetings on the third Monday of each month at the same time and place were agreed.
