Redbourn Labour Party is a small, friendly branch, which concentrates on social and educational activities, rather than just holding regular branch meetings. Funds are raised through parties held at members’ homes – in the garden if the weather allows. In recent years we have also attended talks held by neighbouring constituencies, and organised trips.
In the photograph, members of the branch are seen on the Terrace of the House of Commons, as the guests of Kelvin Hopkins MP (Luton North). Branch member Keith Brookman, a member of the House of Lords, helped to arrange the visit. A room in the House of Lords was arranged for the group, and Keith and Kelvin led a lively discussion on politics, the current government, last Labour government and future Labour government. The group finished with a drink on the Terrace.
Other activities we have taken part in include putting together a quiz team for one of the charity quizzes at the Cricketers pub, joining the demonstration against the cuts in public spending by marching from Blackfriars to Hyde Park, and taking part in the annual Remembrance Day service at the war memorial on Redbourn Common.
We deliver leaflets during elections, and if there were more members, more homes might get Labour party literature. Many of our members also volunteer to deliver or campaign in nearby constituencies, St Albans, Luton South and other parts of our own constituency, Hitchin and Harpenden.
