Debbie Abrahams visits Kaly's Sports Centre in Oldham

Debbie Abrahams the Labour candidate for the Oldham East and Saddleworth By-election visited a sports centre in Oldham .

Kaly’s Sports Centre has ‘state of the ar’t cricket practice facilities and huge childrens paly area, she met locals and saw how the centre is helping the lcoal community.

The centre is owned and run by councillor, Shadab Qumer, who wanted to put something back into his local area and is proud of the way the facilities are helping the youngsters. Debbie met and spoke to members of the centre and was given a few lessons in cricket batting.

Debbie said recently:

It’s an honour and a privilege to have been selected as Labour’s candidate. Now I’m looking forward to getting out and meeting as many residents as possible in the next few weeks to listen to their concerns.

It’s important that the real issues and concerns of people in the borough are not lost during this by-election campaign. People feel let down by the LibDem-Tory broken promises on police cuts, tuition fees and VAT. It doesn’t have to be this way, there is an alternative.

This is an opportunity for people to send a message to the Government. Oldham East and Saddleworth needs a Labour MP who will stand up and fight for them. I’m determined to keep my promises and deliver the best possible deal for people in this borough.

Oldham East and Saddleworth CLP chairwoman Jill Reid said:

“This selection process has attracted a great deal of interest and I would like to thank all the candidates for the way they’ve conducted themselves.

The members have had the final say and in Debbie Abrahams we have chosen a candidate who knows the borough well and will stand up and fight for local people.

With the by-election approaching I know that Labour now has the best candidate to represent Oldham East and Saddleworth in Westminster. Only Labour will stand up for the people in the borough.
