Following a successful recruitment drive at the recent regional conference, the Social Liberal Forum's branch in the North East will be holding their first meeting on Thursday 1st December 2011. Dr David Hall-Matthews, the Chair of the Social Liberal Forum, will be the guest speaker. The meeting will take place from 7.30pm until 9pm in the Whickham Room at Gateshead Civic Centre. All North East Liberal Democrat members are very welcome to join us to discuss how we can create an SLF Branch in the North East which will champion the social liberal values we hold dear. Gateshead Civic Centre is easily reached by car or public transport. There’s ample car parking on site, and the civic centre is just five minutes walk from Gateshead Metro Station.
