A POLITICAL journalist will speak at a fundraising dinner for the Harwich Labour party.

Paul Routledge, who writes for the Daily Mirror, will speak at the event on July 10 at the Cliff Hotel in Dovercourt.

Mr Routledge and Harwich councillor Ivan Henderson became good friends during Mr Henderson’s time as Harwich’s MP and Ivan was often referred to in the Paul Routledge column in the Daily Mirror.

Mr Henderson said: “Paul has so much experience and so many stories to tell. He is fascinating to listen to and I am very grateful to him for agreeing to be guest speaker at our fund raising dinner.”

Tickets are £15 per head and are available from Dee King on 07504615541 or at doloresking2002@yahoo.co.uk
