2 weeks to go

I don’t know where the time has gone but somehow Colleges Week is just two weeks away!

It’s been a bit of a funny old time in politics (perhaps a bit of an understatement) and while the Campaigns Team would have loved to have all of the activities signed off before now, we felt it was more important to reflect upon the current environment and to adapt this Autumn’s activity so that we’re focusing resource where we think it will have the most impact.

I’m sure lots of you were looking forward to getting involved in the London-based lobby (I know I was, having missed it last year due to maternity leave) but the plan is to do this activity in the new year in time to influence the expected Comprehensive Spending Review in the Spring.

There is still lots going on during the week and we’ve made some suggestions about activities you could do in our ‘Activity Planner’ but we know that the best ideas always come from you! If you haven’t already done so, please do let us know what you are planning either via your AoC Area Director or email us at loveourcolleges@aoc.co.uk.

I also want to give a quick mention to our newly launched activity - Pledge Cards. This is a fun and interactive way to get more people engaged with the campaign as well as to show your MP how much local support there is. Do have a think about how you can incorporate it into what you’re already doing and don’t forget to let us know how many signed cards you manage to collect!
