Helping Labour towards success

As the new vice chair membership of Bexhill and Battle Constituency Labour Party, I’d like to welcome new members.

I look forward, over the coming months, to growing our already substantial number of active campaigners from among our 736 local members, our affiliated supporters, our registered supporters and new arrivals.

With this aim, I look forward to speaking with as many of you as possible, finding out what motivated you to join, your areas of interest and encouraging you to become active.

Over my 37 years of continuous Labour Party membership, I have always campaigned with Labour councillors, candidates and colleagues from across Labour’s broad political spectrum. I will continue to do so. In my new role, I shall be motivating and encouraging members from a range of opinions to get involved and help Labour towards electoral success.
