Who we are
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 5 branches in the constituency are New Brighton; Liscard; Seacombe; Leasowe & Moreton East and Moreton West & Saughall Massie.
Where we are
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, crossing Belvidere Rd and going down Newland Dr, Wallasey Road to 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!).
What we do
There are around 200 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.
Before council elections we choose the Labour candidate. 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, including
- to keep Wallasey fire station open in the evenings;
- opposing the closure of the NHS walk in centre in Mill Lane
- 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 oppose 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.
Since COVID our activities have, of necessity, been very restricted. We always work in accordance with the current government policy and the advice issued from time to time by the government, Wirral council and the Labour Party.
