Dan Shearer: Chair, Putney CLP It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the new website from Putney CLP (Constituency Labour Party).
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the new website from Putney CLP (Constituency Labour Party). Whether you are a new member or have just moved here, thinking about membership or just interested, I’m delighted you have stopped by to take a look.
In Putney Labour, we are a friendly bunch of people who come from all walks of life – united in our shared Labour values. When I ask members what they like most about our local party, they mention how it is a bit like being part of a large, extended family! The atmosphere is incredibly welcoming and there are many ways to get involved and being an active members can be a very rewarding experience when we see the difference that Labour in power can make. Anyone, no matter their age or background, is welcomed and encouraged to get involved.
One of the best parts of Putney Labour is that we are a campaigning CLP. That means we get out on the doorstep, speak to people, and are rooted in our communities. We are an outward looking party locally, who believes that politics is more about listening than talking! I think this is what made us the only Labour gain of 2019 – where we elected the fantastic Fleur Anderson as our MP.
In 2022, fresh from our gains in the general election and after having re-elected Leonie Cooper as our Assembly Member last year, we are looking forward to the May elections this year where we hope to make Wandsworth a Labour council for the first time since 1974!
Thanks for your interest in Putney Labour, and we would be thrilled if you wanted to join us. Click the links on the website to do so!
