Tim Farron MP writes… Pledge me 10!

Will you pledge to recruit 10 people to join the Lib Dems this summer? They could be 10 completely new members, 10 lapsed members or a mixture. But I need you to make me that pledge today and to fulfil it before we get to our Brighton conference in September.

The most important thing to me is that our Party grows and thrives to ensure that we continue to be the radical force in British politics. All of us need to play our part to build our campaigning capacity - and there is no better and more important way of doing this than by increasing our membership.

We all know that we should be recruiting members, but too few of us are actually doing it. This summer, let's have our biggest increase in membership ever, lets confound the pundits. But I need you to help me do it.

Will you pledge to get 10 by 21st September? Go on! I'll lead the way and pledge to you all today that I will sign up 10 new members myself before autumn conference - will you join me? If so please email me at tim.farron@libdems.org.uk and make the pledge.

If you do this and make the pledge, I'll send you a recruitment kit with everything you could possibly need to get you going - and once you've fulfilled that pledge and recruited your 10 members you'll get an extra special conference invite to an exclusive reception to look forward to with me and some other guests who are even more exciting! You will also get a special badge (control yourselves!) for you to wear to show off your recruitment prowess!

…and once you've got your 10, well, you could keep going and recruit some more! Yesterday I pinned a 'top recruiter's' badge on Peter Philips of Ludlow who has personally recruited a whopping 37 members in the last few weeks. Recruitment's a lot easier than you think and it is absolutely vital, but it won't happen by accident - it will only happen if we get out there and get asking our voters and supporters to join up.

Let's boost our membership together like never before. Let's make the pledge.

* Tim Farron is President of the Liberal Democrats.
