National issues may dominate the media but the Labour Party is based on its members working at the local level. Since the 2015 general election, party membership has increased greatly and we seek to encourage all our members to help achieve its political purposes.
Branch officers help guide and lead party activities at local branch level, providing support to members as necessary and welcoming all members both new and old. I have lived in Cheltenham since 1987 and have worked at GCHQ until 2010. In 2017, I was the general election candidate for Cheltenham. I currently live in Lansdown ward.
