Withdean Labour includes Withdean, Westdene, Varndean, Surrenden and Preston Village, covering the area from Preston Drove to The Deneway and up to the edge of the Downs, and from Dyke Road to Ditchling Road.
We hold members’ meetings most months (on no set date), breaking for a Summer Party in August. On campaign days, Withdean Labour members runs Pavilion Labour’s campaign stall for London Road shoppers, and we run local leafleting and campaigning sessions around our neighbourhood at other times. We also enjoy occasional other events including outings to a local pub quiz, where volunteer are always welcome!
Withdean Labour Party regularly campaigns on local and national issues, such as Save Preston Park Cycle Track, the People’s Post and Action For Rail, as well as having many members actively involved with local education and NHS campaigns. We are committed supporters of rail public ownership and call for proper investment in our station infrastructure, so obviously needed at Preston Park station. We oppose the sale of any rights over public sports facilities or school fields.
Currently there are no Labour councillors in Withdean but we have plans to change that in 2019. Labour candidates Ian McIsaac and James Thompson are already building upon the big steps forward we made in 2015. Come along to help us get Ian and James elected as Labour councillors on 2 May 2019!
