Preseli Pembrokeshire Consituency
Located in South-West Wales, Preseli Pembrokeshire is a constituency made up of six branches located in the upper half of the county.
In modern times the constituency has seen Stephen Crabb (Conservative) represent them in parliament. But the Labour party are working hard to regain the seat, reducing his vote lead to only 314 votes in the 2017 General Election.
The Constituency Labour Party (CLP) hosts a number of events throughout the Constituency for members to get involved with. Their are a mixture of Branch Meetings, All Member Meetings and other Events and Functions. There are also a number of fundraising and campaigning opportunities, which together aim towards making our constituency a great place to be.
Branches and Meetings
The Labour Party is split up into a number of different branches that meet regularly with their own agendas and events, each Branch has their own set of officers. You can find out more about individual branches by clicking through to their pages.
All-Member meetings (AMMs) are usually the most interesting! These are open to all members of the Preseli Pembrokeshire Constituency party. There will often be a bit of CLP business to take care of, a motion or two and a debate about a relevant topic. Everyone is welcome and we hope that new members will attend and take part too.
Branch meetings are smaller meetings and tend to be more informal, they are also welcome to everybody. For voting rights you will need to be a member.
The Executive Commitee (EC) meetings are where the more mundane CLP business is dealt with, and usually relate to the organisational side of the party.
