Welcome to the Teignmouth Branch web site.
There have been a record number of new members joining the Labour Party - many of whom have become active members of our Teignmouth Branch.
Across the country, people have had enough of the Tory austerity policies which are destroying our public services and our NHS and are failing to fix the deficit or the economy. People everywhere are taking up the challenge to help the Labour Party into government. We want to invest in the infrastructure, build the economy, create a National Bank, improve public transport, redress increasing inequalities, save the NHS, public services and welfare state, provide better social care for our sick, elderly and vulnerable - and generally to work towards establishing a future of security, hope, opportunity and prosperity for the majority in Britain.
New members are very welcome. We need you. You can make a difference.
Just to put us into context - Teignmouth is a branch of the Newton Abbot Constituency. Before the 2010 election the Newton Abbot Constituency was known as the Teignbridge Constituency Labour Party. Our local party candidate Roy Freer fought the General Election in May 2015 and we are pleased to say that we increased our share of the vote. And now is the time to build upon that success, in view of the strong public backing for the new national movement against austerity, welfare and budget cuts.
The constituency Labour Party is entirely within the district of Teignbridge and it is divided into three branches:-
The electoral wards covered by the three branches under the CLP are as follows:-
Newton Abbot Branch: - Ambrook, Bradley, Buckland & Milber, Bushell College, Ipplepen, Kerswell with Combe, Kingsteignton East & Kingsteignton West.
Teignmouth Branch: - Bishopsteignton, Shaldon, Stokeinteignhead, Teignmouth Central, Teignmouth East & Teignmouth West
Dawlish Branch - Dawlish Central and North East, Dawlish South West, Kenton with Starcross
Monthly meetings are usually held on the last Monday of each month in TAAG (Teignmouth Arts Action Group), Northumberland Place, Teignmouth at 7.30pm. The first 30 minutes is devoted to Party business and the remainder of the meeting is for topical political discussion.
All members are welcome to attend and encouraged to share their ideas and contribute fully to these discussions.
We are open to suggestions and improvements to take our Party forward and to reach out to people in our community and to bring them a different way of running the country - a way that will help the majority not the minority.
