Who we are: With over 300 Labour Party members and many registered supports, we cover over 6,700 households in Ranmoor, Endcliffe, Lodge Moor, Nethergreen and Fulwood.
We aim to be a community organisation with the wellbeing of our ward, its residents, businesses and workers as our central concern. We welcome your input, whether to tell us of a concern you have or to share a local project with which we could become involved.
We aim to be collaborative and inclusive in our approach and welcome and seek to encourage engagement with people of diverse backgrounds and opinions .
Currently we have no Labour councillor to speak for us on Sheffield City Council. We are working together to change that. In the most recent election in May 2021, and despite the constraints and challenges of Covid19, the Labour candidate improved our share of the vote in the Ward by 7% compared to 2019 results and the successful candidate secured only 46% of the total votes cast by residents overall. We are continuing to actively campaign to build on this improvement in results.
Our meetings: Meetings are held at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of the month (except August and December when we don’t meet). We are still using Zoom for meetings while we search for a more suitable venue which would allow for good ventilation and offer streaming facilities in addition to the ability for members to attend in person. At our meetings, we try to mix formal business with informed discussions about current issues or concerns. For information or invitation to the meetings, contact our Branch Secretary at email@example.com
Our Team of Branch Officers who are all local residents of Fulwood Ward:
- Chair: Lynn Pocock
- Vice Chairs: Patrick Seyd and Nigel Jones
- Secretaries: Jane Evans and Mark Beckles-Willson
- Treasurer: Maggie Riley
- Campaigns: Matt Killeya and Dermot Gleeson
Our funding: We depend on donations and fund-raising events to augment income from membership fees which aim to be kept at an affordable level, to fund our activities and campaigns. If you would like to help with these or make a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How you can be involved: We encourage members to be involved with the branch in the way that feels most comfortable to them. Attending branch meetings gives members an opportunity to keep abreast of ongoing local and national issues as well as providing a forum for discussion and opportunity to influence policy, locally and nationally. Invited speakers inform our conversations as they share information and insights about their particular area of expertise or responsibility.
Members and supporters can actively help in the ward by displaying a poster or garden post, delivering leaflets, taking part in our regular food-bank collections, speaking to voters personally with door-to-door visits or helping out when we visit local neighbourhoods to hear the concerns of the residents.
