The Labour Party in Cheltenham was founded in 1918 by the Cheltenham and District Trade and Labour Council with the purpose of electing Labour representatives onto the Town Council.
In these times of relentless austerity and uncertainty, the values Labour stands for in Cheltenham today remain those which have guided our local party since those early days.
We stand for the basic rights and opportunities that underpin a caring society: building the homes people need, keeping communities safe, funding our schools so that every child has a fair chance in life, and restoring the NHS to its place at the heart of our social contract with each other.
We are a proud internationalist political party, promoting peace and cooperation to address urgent global challenges: climate change, regional conflict, the resurgence of far-right ideology and violence, and the retreat towards nationalism.
We organise monthly All Member Meetings, a book club, visiting speakers and debates, canvassing, town centre street stalls and a range of other campaigning activities.
