Liz was joined at the shop by local councillors as well as Shadow Cabinet Member Gloria De Piero MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities and Jonathan Ashworth MP and Shadow Cabinet Office Minister.
Speaking to Rochdale Online Liz said: “The campaign is going well. We have seen a lot of support from a lot of people who want to see this seat stay Labour.
"Jim Dobbin was a passionate man who always put the people of Heywood and Middleton first. I want to show him and everyone voting that this seat can be kept Labour.”
If selected as the MP for Heywood and Middleton in the election on Thursday 9 October, Liz promises to offer a strong voice to those who elect her.
She said: “People can expect a strong voice and an MP who will stand up for them in Westminster.”
Liz was born in Oldham and has worked in the NHS for over 30 years.
When asked who she sees as her competition in the upcoming election, Liz said: “They are all my opponents so whether it is the Tories or UKIP, they are all my competition.”
