We meet every month (usually the 2nd Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday – we like to mix it up a bit) to share information and talk about politics. We usually meet at Mycenae House in Mycenae Road near the Standard at 7.30, though we are looking at varying our meeting places as well as our meeting days.
Meetings give us the chance to learn from each other and guest speakers, and an opportunity to work together on campaigns and on furthering the ideals which brought us together.
Our Chair is Roger Allen, whose aim is to help push Labour to stand firmly against inequality and injustice and to not lose sight of the ideals of socialism. He wants the Branch to place local issues in a national (sometimes international) context and encourages maximum participation by all members in Branch and Constituency meetings and socials, in campaigning and in other political activities
