We encourage debate and involvement at all levels and we contribute our ideas to Labour Party policy at the national level. Even if you are not a member, you are welcome to come to one of our public meetings, where you can hear a speaker with national knowledge. Members and non-members alike are invited to join in the discussion. Lively discussions are also held at CLP and branch meetings, in addition to their more formal business.
The Parliamentary Candidate for the Witney Constituency in the General Election on 8 June 2017 was Laetisia Carter, who came in second behind the Conservatives and ahead of the Liberal Democrats. The number of our Labour councillors in West Oxfordshire is on the rise, and we have a candidate in all 17 wards that are being contested in the upcoming (3rd May) District Council elections.
Not everything we do is deadly serious. We hold regular social events at both branch and constituency level. Past events have included jazz nights, Christmas dinners, club quizzes, and the annual Brian Hodgson Memorial walks.
