“Many people in our Ecclesfield and Chapeltown areas are already feeling the impact of reduced income and job losses during covid.
Now a cost of living crisis is due to pinch.” says Ecclesfield-based Labour campaigner Craig Gamble Pugh.
Former Labour Councillor Andy Bainbridge said “Boris Johnson’s government has failed to manage this crisis, which will be felt in our areas.”
