Campaigning in Lingfield with Woldingham’s 6th Formers

I was joined in Lingfield this afternoon by some 6th Form volunteers from Woldingham School’s politics class. I spoke at their school assembly on Monday morning, and they were keen to see what grass roots campaigning was all about at a General Election – namely canvassing and meeting the public! One of my priorities is getting young people interested in politics, and it was great to be able to give them something that helped put what they are learning in the classroom into perspective.
