Victoria and Milton BLP AGMs

Recent reorganisation has seen the old Central Branch in Rochford and Southend East split up into wards: Kursaal, Milton, St. Luke’s, and Victoria.

At this, grassroots, level the units are called Branch Labour Parties. I have always been a fan of local branches and grassroots activism. For most of my membership of Labour I have had a role in running a branch – most recently Leigh branch in Southend West. For a decade I was Secretary there.

At the weekend we had the inaugural meetings of Victoria and Milton Branch Labour Parties. The following officers were elected.


Victoria

Chair
Julian Ware-Lane
Vice chair
Tom Murray
Secretary
Jes Phillips


There is a vacancy for treasurer and Gary Farrer is temporarily doing this role until we can find a volunteer.


Milton

Chair
Karen Reinecke
Vice chair
Carl Mingard
Secretary
Paul Stygal
Treasurer
Mac Felton



So I am back in an organisational role within the local Labour Party. I am still Treasurer of the Local Campaign Forum (although I am about to lose this at the AGM – when it gets organised). I am also Chair of the Southend Labour Club and Institute. Happy days.
