Hello, this is just a quick update to inform members not at the AGM that I was very honoured to be elected to succeed Peter Donovan as secretary of our constituency party at the AGM in November. Peter and I will be working together over the coming weeks to ensure a smooth handover. I’d also like to thank Peter for his years of service, I’m sure he will be similarly indispensable in his new role as membership secretary. There remain a number of other vacant positions on the executive committee, especially a youth officer, a BAME officer and a campaign coordinator. If you’re interested in one of those roles or in volunteering in any other capacity then please get in touch. The last 18 months we have seen a dramatic increase in our local membership and the exciting challenge now is to grow this into an effective campaigning force that can work for real change in our communities.
