TUSC by-election boost in Grimsby and Cleethorpes

Last May we fought in all 15 council and the Grimsby and Cleethorpes parliamentary seats.

The campaign focused on the closure of the Care4All centres in North East Lincolnshire. It was rumoured that two out of the four centres were to close. They provide day-care for the elderly and disabled and the Meals on Wheels services.

We received a lot of positive feedback from the residents of Croft Baker who were shocked and angry that such a vital service for their community was being targeted by more vicious cuts. People were glad to see somebody standing up against cuts and to defend services.

Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) candidate Dave Mitchell won 4.1% in a council by-election in Cleethorpes. This was up on 1.8% in the last election.
