Free lunchtime event in February in Hertford

East Herts People is hosting an informal gathering for anyone interested in local government in East Hertfordshire. The free lunchtime event will be held in Hertford on the 6th February 2010 at 12pm-1pm.

Independent Councillors and members of the East Herts People team will talk briefly about what they have been up to in the last year and their plans for 2010.

Jim Thornton (founder of EHP) will be launching his new book, 'Independents for East Herts'. This book contains electioneering advice and is an essential read for anyone thinking of becoming an independent Councillor. He also discusses his time as an East Herts District Councillor and his experiences of standing for election as an independent.

The event will be a great opportunity to meet like minded people interested in non-party politics. Refreshments will be provided for by guests.

If you wish to attend please send an email to to reserve your place.

 I have just been watching the BBC2 programme "Virtual Revolution" about the internet and the possibilities of using it to mobilise opinion on a large scale and the way it is to a great extent bypassing traditional politics.

A large number of people are becoming increasingly angry with the East Herts District Council over its repeated refusal to introduce Pay on Exit car parking in Hertford.  Is there any way this anger can be concentrated by means of Twitter or some other means to direct a major protest against the Council's obstinacy?

Hi David,

I'm sure there is, why don't you set up a campaign Facebook page for this? You could also conduct an online petition?

You could also discuss this online on the forum:

Let us know how it goes!
