The Stroud area has a radical tradition stretching back hundreds of years, and over the last 25 years, Stroud has been well represented by Labour in Westminster. David Drew won the seat for us at the 1997 general election and was re-elected three times (with a couple of gaps) through to 2017. In the 2019 election, we lost the seat by fewer than 4,000 votes. Stroud is now a key marginal seat for the party nationally.

The party has about 1000 members and a thriving Branch structure. Members undertake canvassing, campaigning, distributing leaflets, fundraising, policy discussions and social activities. Many members have been elected to positions at Town, Parish, District and County Council levels.

We welcome new members. Join the Labour Party here “JOIN LABOUR “. If you are a member already and want to get more involved contact your Branch or Get Involved. You can also fill out the form at  Volunteer.
