An early start yesterday morning, as Voluntary Action Islington (formerly IVAC) were holding their hustings at 8.30am!
Pictured here are (L to R) Richard Bunting (Islington Conservatives), Catherine West (leader of Islington Council Labour group), me (Emma Dixon) and Terry Stacy (Lib Dem leader of Islington Council).
The hustings were a great opportunity for me to find out more about the challenges faced by the third sector in Islington, and to express my support for their excellent manifesto.
At this time of threatened cuts to the public sector, the Green Party has pledged both locally and nationally that we will protect front-line services - and that is equally, if not more, important where those services are provided by the third sector.
And for those of you who weren't at the hustings - you can catch up on who said what via Voluntary Action Islington's live Twitter feed!
