Another bumper New Members meeting

Another full house for our London New Members meeting.

London Green Party is close to hitting the 10,000 member mark.

The photo shows only a corner of the room with GPEW Deputy Leader, Shahrar Ali in animated discussion with the new members.

Our membership surge is really phenomenal.  This time last year we had 2,300 members and when I took over as London Membership Officer, in September, we had just over 3,000 members.  January has been hectic. In three days we took on 2,000 new members. At one stage we were getting a new member every two minutes.  On my birthday, January 20th, I spent the whole day sending welcome messages and replies to 678 new members. Hard work, but I love it!
