The Labour Party has almost 2000 members in Canterbury & Whitstable, and is continuing to grow. We are a diverse group of local people who believe our communities deserve better than a Conservative Government and their aggressive cuts to our public services and their failed economic plan.

The Constituency Labour Party meets quarterly but is supported by two branches, one in Canterbury and one in Whitstable who run local campaigns.

The Local Labour party doesn’t have a specific branch for members who live in the villages that surround Canterbury, however most attend the Canterbury branch.

Meetings in Canterbury take place on the second Monday of every month, 7.30 – 9.30 pm at the Quaker Meeting House near the Marlowe Theatre.

We regularly run more informal meetings, fundraisers and campaign events in the local villages. Rosie regularly runs surgeries in Littlebourne, Barham, Chartham & Blean.

If you are not sure which branch you should attend don’t hesitate to contact the CLP secretary Rita O Brien by emailing [email protected]

Whilst we don’t have a branch dedicated to the villages, we do have a network of ward organisers who live in Littlebourne, Bridge, Blean, Chartham. This work is co-ordinated by your local campaign lead Pete Forest. To get involved in campaigns in your area email [email protected]
