About Sevenoaks Constituency Labour Party
Hundreds of new members have joined Sevenoaks Labour Party over the past year. Sevenoaks Constituency Labour Party (CLP) covers the parliamentary constituency of Sevenoaks. It also covers the majority of the Sevenoaks District Council area which also includes parts of both Tonbridge & Malling and Dartford CLPs.
We organise the Constituency Labour Party through an annually elected Executive Committee which meets every two months at our Party HQ in Swanley. We own the Party HQ at The Corner House, London Road, Swanley, BR8 7QD. It has a car park on the left just before the building and houses our printer and campaign materials.
We also hold All-member meetings, currently every two months, on topical issues, and are planning to alternate these between Sevenoaks and Swanley; for campaigning we call this the Local Campaign Forum.
Every member is allocated to one of our three branches:
- Sevenoaks & District, which covers the town and surrounding villages such as Kemsing, Seal, Dunton Green and the town of Westerham. Under the branch structure, Westerham has its own Labour Forum, an informal, local Labour group that members in villages or communities are welcome to set up for themselves (contact me for more information).
- Shoreham & District, which covers the Darent Valley villages from South Darenth to Otford along with New Ash Green (which has its own Labour Forum) and West Kingsdown.
- Swanley & District which covers the town, Hextable and Crockenhill.
If you’re not sure which your branch is, do let me know.
We feed in policy ideas to the Kent, South East Region and national Labour Parties, send delegates to those bodies, although it is also hoped individual members will be able to contribute to the policy-making process more in the future.
Any questions? Just drop me an email.
As well as political discussions, we hold a number of social events each year to which all members are welcome. Each January we hold an annual dinner with a guest speaker.
