Hove Labour AGM Cancelled: Venue issues apparantly

Hi so just had this email:

Dear Delegate,


We are very sorry to inform you that the Hove AGM scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday) has to be postponed and will not happen. The venue has suddenly become unavailable and it’s too late to find another venue and inform members accordingly.


We do apologise for any inconvenience this causes.


We will be in touch soon to let you know when we will be able to reschedule the AGM as we understand this is important to local members.


Apologies again.


Yours sincerely,


Louise Magee 


Regional Director

Intereting indeed, with Brighton Kemptown and Pavilion CLP voting in mostly Corbyn supporting candidates, I am concerned with this cancellation.

This is now the second time this or something similar has happened, the steering commitee failed, and now the regional organised AGM has failed.

I am experienced with events and this reason for the venue now not being available doesnt make sense.

A room booking is a contact, they cannot cancel without notice so I raise questions around this.

Nonetheless I think ordinary members can see the real reason. The left have been denied a vote again.

The Labour Party and the subsequent NEC decision has failed.

This is a manufactured thing, I suggeted at a steering committee meeting to use Sussex County Cricket Club as a venue, went on death ears. Now we have the faulse allegations and a jewish venue who will not allow us to hold the event.

Regional were here to facilitate, they have failed.

Update: 18:00 sat 4th feb 2017

A venue was located, found and available and regional have decided not to rescheduale and insted we need to wait until further notice.

Basically we could have easily have reareanged due to the outragous actions of a venue who have breached there booking terms most likely.
