Local Campaigns

We campaign on both local and national issues, supporting the residents of Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and surrounding villages in their ambitions and aspirations for the future of Mid Sussex. Challenging the status quo of the conservative led Town and District Councils and putting the people first.

From local rail services and housing, to national NHS cuts, the environment and lack of employee protection and zero hours contracts - we aim to make a difference to the lives of Mid Sussex residents.

Shami Chakrabarti comes to Burgess Hill

Shami Chakrabarti, the Shadow Attorney General and member of the House of Lords gives an amazing open talk, to over 80 people from across Mid Sussex.

The fundraising evening was a sell out. Many thought provoking questions and conversations, huge thanks to Shami for coming to Burgess Hill and to Sarah from Haywards Heath branch for organising a very succesful evening.

Shami’s first book, On Liberty, is published by Penguin. Her second, Of Women, was published on 26 October 2017.

   

Labour Conference delegates 2018

The all-women Mid Sussex delegates at Labour conference 2018, to mark the centenary of some women gaining the franchise to vote.

A fantastic conference with very positive messages, and inspiring speeches.

Our 2018 Manifesto is our best yet!

Great to meet up with so many like minded people.

   

Mid Sussex Womens Forum

Our Women’s Forum held a community fair where many organisations that support women and girls had stalls and talked to the many visitors.

Women from a range of local organisations attended, including Haywards Heath Foodbank, Safe in Sussex, the Red Box Project, Smalls for All and Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI). There were hundreds of donations on the day from sanitary products for local schools, to bras that will be sent to women in Africa.

   

Lindfield Village Day

We have a stall each year at Lindfield Village day

Thank you to everyone involved for your help in making the day so successful, it gets better each year

We had a number of potential new members who want to join or re-join the party, and comments that it was great to see the Labour Party on Lindfield Common again.
