Drinks for Andrew Reeves – Belfast Edition


Andrew Reeves

Cross posted on Stephen’s Liberal Journal

I’m just in from Liberal Drinks in Belfast. Ian Walton from the Welsh Liberal Democrats so it was a reason to meet up, but part of the evening was a memory of Andrew Reeves of which four of the five present had something in common.

Myself you know about from the recent time we both spent in Scotland, Pam Tilson from her time in London, Ian also from his time there and of course in his current role in Cardiff, and Michael as he and Andrew both were part of the stewarding team at Federal Conference. The other person present was of course Michael’s Andrew.

We toasted our mutual friend, told stories of times we shared with Andrew and thought of what Andrew would have done, plus got on with catching up with each others news.

Even though we couldn’t be at the Joseph Pearce in Edinburgh we were part of the outpouring of lovce for Andrew. At this point we could all almost hear Andrew saying, “That’s enough sitting around, get up, get out and get on with telling people why we’re Lib Dems.” as he would often be heard to say on any campaign he was involved with. And that is what the five of us intend to do.


BLD – Pint the Third


Now that Federal Autumn Conference is over for another season, come and have some post Conference banter and discussion at the third Belfast Liberal Drinks.

This time we’ve changed the day to a Thursday, hopefully more people will be encouraged to come. If you’re a Lib Dem member you can sign up at FlockTogether to let us know you’re coming. Alternatively (or as well) you can sign up on Facebook.

September 30, 2010, from 7pm
John Hewitt Bar, Donegall Street, Belfast.

BLD – Pint the Second


Pint the Second - 14 September 2010, from 7pm

Following the success of the inaugural Belfast Liberal Drinks, and with two birthdays (Stephen Glenn and Pam Tilson) falling on the same day at Federal Conference again, we thought we’d have some celebratory drinks on 14 September 2010 in The John Hewitt pub in Donegall Street, Belfast.

Anyone who wants to come, is welcome, you can sign up on flocktogether or on facebook.
