The first Saturday of July each year is celebrated by the UN as International Cooperatives day and each year a specific theme to celebrate is chosen. This year the theme is INCLUSION.

Inclusion captures the people-focused nature of co-operatives, which provide a space where all people, regardless of race, gender, culture, social background or economic circumstance, can meet their needs and build better communities.

Indeed 2012 was designated by the UN as the International Year of Cooperatives because, as their theme stated "Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World".

Co-operatives are a key tool for development everywhere because they provide employment locally and keep the surpluses for the local good; they are all democracies and the co-op value of equality means that women as well as men get to have a say in things that affect their lives.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated in 2012, “Through their distinctive focus on values, cooperatives have proven themselves a resilient and viable business model that can prosper even during difficult times. This success has helped prevent many families and communities from sliding into poverty."

I would like to say a big thank you for all your help in our general election campaign.  Whether it was canvassing, leafleting, coming along to one of our events, or simply speaking to friends, neighbours and family about the Labour Party and how important it is to vote Labour at the election, I am really grateful.

As you know, we had a good result, increasing our vote by over 4000 to 10,545, our best result here for over 30 years. We could not have achieved this without all the hard work of so many of you.
 
It was a great honour to be the candidate in this election representing the Labour Party in the town where I was born and brought up. I believe we fought a very honest campaign on the important issues that matter to people in Guildford - funding for both our schools and health service, and measures to deal with the housing crisis. I am very proud of our team who put in so much in order that we could achieve such a good result.
 
Given the overall result in the election there may well be another quite soon and I'm certain this will be the one which will result in next Labour government.  So it's important that we keep the momentum going in the constituency to contribute to that success. As other results in the country have shown, it is entirely possible for Labour to win in Guildford, but it will take persistence, determination and hard work.

Promoted by Nick Trier on behalf of Howard Smith, both of 9b Martyr Road, Guildford, Surrey GU1 4LF.

Thank you from Howard
