Last year was our 25th anniversary, about 300 people came – a good mixture of trades unionists and local people from Whitmore Reans. It was a very successful night.

We had over a dozen union and local campaign stalls, free mehndi and bouncy castle, face-painting and we served over 250 free meals. Our main acts were Attila the Stockbroker & Reckless bboy crew.

Lynne Moran, the local Labour Party councillor who addressed the crowd, increased her percentage of the vote the following day at election. We had a number of new signups and understand that the union stalls present recruited several new members
