Resources for Internet Politics

These documents, created by your Friendly Neighbourhood Admin (Bethany), were a hit on Facebook and at our Anti-Semitism Awareness meeting with the JVL, respectively.

The evolution of the language of Internet discussion is continuously led by millennials, so these documents bridge the gap between old and young.

The Exec 2018!

In the Labour Party, the branch is the institution where most campaigning activity happens. The branch also decides on how that campaigning happens. The branch is assisted by the Constituency Labour Party (CLP), like in terms of advice and funding during election campaigns. In return, the branch raises funds for the CLP.

The Glossopdale Branch is the place where most Labour Party members can connect with the organisation. It is also where they can discuss issues that affect them, attend meetings, take part in social activities, share information, gain training, and more.

Below is the Exec Board of Glossopdale Branch, who were elected at the 2018 AGM:

Chair – Ray Collins

Secretary – Linda Walker

Treasurer – Gerry Dominey

Membership Secretary – Julie Wynne

Campaigns Coordinator – Kasey Carver

Social and Fundraising Organiser – Debbie Windle

Web and Social Media Officer – Bethany Gemmell

(Images of their smiling faces will be uploaded soon!)
