Where our branch fits in
The Wallasey parliamentary constituency elects an MP, currently Angela Eagle, and is divided up into 6 council wards, each of which elects 3 councillors onto Wirral Council.
The Labour party has separate branches for each of the council wards and every Labour party member is a part of the branch that covers the ward that they live in.
Wallasey branch consists of all Labour party members who live in the council’s Wallasey ward. (The other five branches in the Wallasey constituency are listed here)
About Wallasey branch
Our branch is bordered to the North by the Coast. To the East by Mount Road, Mount Pleasant Road and Seaview Road to ASDA. To the South by Burns Avenue, Valkyrie Rd, Leander Rd, Belvidere Rd, Wallasey Road, going down St Hilary Brow and continuing down Wallacre Road to Mosslands school. To the West by the A554/ North Wallasey Approach Road, (oh, the romance of names).
There are around 250 members in the branch, many of whom are involved in the local community. We are an active and campaigning branch, out all year round door knocking, leafleting, canvassing and building support for the Labour party, our principles, our aims and our policies. There are three Tory councillors in our ward at the moment but we are determined to keep working to change that.
We campaign on local issues such as, in the last year, to keep Wallasey fire station open in the evenings; opposing the closure of the NHS walk in centre in Mill Lane and challenging cuts to local bus services.
We also support campaigns by other groups and trade unions in the area, such as the strike by Cammell Laird workers over job cuts and casualisation; the RMT campaign to keep the guard on the new trains and the Unite/GMB campaign to stop ASDA changing the contracts of its stores staff.
We work with other Labour branches in the Wirral, and with the Wallasey Constituency Labour Party, which we send delegates to, the Labour Group on Wirral Council, our local MP Angela Eagle and the Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram.
We usually have a branch meeting every month and every Labour party member who lives in the area covered by the branch is welcome to come along. Details of meetings are emailed or posted to all members by the Branch Secretary at least a week in advance.
Meetings usually start at 7.30pm and are held in the Wallasey Village Library St. George’s Road Wallasey Village CH45 3NE – but sometimes the details change so always check the notice of meeting from the Branch Secretary.
