Don't dilute other campaigners - join them

This campaign tip (no. 13) was published on Sunday, 13th January 2019
2 + 2 = 5 ... if you add together and work together you get more - now only do you avoid duplication of work, but you put a united front forward that helps the people you are campaigning to be reassured that the case is singular and has strength in numbers

You can also say 5 - 1 = 3 - loosing even a small active section of your group can be more harmful than just the numbers lost.
,br> I'm not advocating that all groups and campaigns merge - but rather work in concert. Organisations such as TravelWatch SouthWest and RailFuture are excellent in talking wider that single public transport campaigns - but you will note that TravelWatch SouthWest supports others and rarely leads on individual items.

These pages are written by Graham Ellis of Melksham, Wiltshire. Overlapping a life in IT and IT training, with running a hotel and campaigning for improved public transport, Graham has never been quiet - though he's starting to wind down gently now. He no longer takes overnight guests and has stepped doen from the "Community Rail Officer" role which he accidentally aquired. So he now has more time to write pages such as these and to travel in the UK. He'll be delighted to speak with your group or take a look through your case or camapaign, but be alerted that his time is not limitless even now, and he still has to keep the wolf from the door.

What a difference a campaign makes!

It probably wouldn't have happened without a strong community campaign with which I have been involved. Most days through 2019 I'll be sharing a thought, an idea, a way of working or an experience. Come back here for the links. Discussions via the Coffee Shop Forum - Graham Ellis, 31st December 2018
