LICBN Meeting 08 Nov 2016 - Xábia Andy MacDonald MP Shadow Transport Secretary Guest Speaker

 


 

 

PS: At our November 2016 the meeting, Labour International Costa Blanca welcomed two Xabia PSOE counsellors and received a copy of a resolution moved by the Mayor of Xabia, Jose Chulvi, and carried unanimously at a plenary session of the Ayuntamiento.

The resolution is attached, and comprises a background to the motion and the motion itself - - click to view

We really appreciated the support for British citizens which has been given by the Ayuntamiento and share their wish to respect equally the social and political rights of Spanish citizens resident in the UK. The example set in the small town of Xabia serves as a model for the kind of treatment we would wish to see replicated throughout the U.K.

Please share this document with as many friends and colleagues in Labour Party branches and Trade Unions as you can. Fraternally, Moira John (Chair of the Meeting)

Obituary - Phyllis Mansfield


Sadly we have just heard that Phyllis died peacefully in her sleep last Monday, 17th December 2018. Well into her 90s  she and her late husband Geoff were long-standing and very active members of the Labour Group on the Costa Blanca. True to form, Phyllis enlivened many of the discussions in the meetings there and she will be sadly missed. The funeral will be at 12 noon on Friday 11th January at the South West Middlesex Crematorium 

The funeral will be at 12 noon on Friday 11th January at the South West Middlesex Crematorium


In 2013 Phyllis and her daughter, Lizzie visited Cuba.  The  announcement in an earlier edition of the website is reproduced below:

Phyllis Mansfield (above left) recently made a trip to Cuba with her daughter Lizzie. After arriving in Havana they hired a car and drove some 800 miles from Havana, almost the whole length of Cuba to Santiago de Cuba in the extreme south east of the island, near to where Fidel and Raul Castro were born and raised in the 1920s and 30s.  Phyllis received a letter  from Maria Carmen Cedeño Rodriguez, Jefe del Departamento Atencion a la Población, celebrating the 55th anniversary of the Republic of Cuba
