In Croydon during the EU referendum we had a borough wide campaign with the Vote Leave, Leave.EU and Grassroots Out groups all ran borough wide as one campaign.

The campaign team had many many members who all made great contributions.  The team’s structure was as follows:

Mike Swadling – Borough Lead

Duncan Forsyth – Croydon North Lead

Dan Heaton – Croydon Central Lead

Chris Mendes – Croydon South Lead
