Prudhoe & District Branch
Prudhoe and District Labour Party branch is based on an area containing three council wards: 'Prudhoe North', 'Prudhoe South' and 'Stocksfield and Broomhaugh' and hence includes the town of Prudhoe and villages of Mickley, Stocksfield, Riding Mill, Broomley and New Ridley.
The branch is very active and campaigns on local issues and also the national issues which face us all. We campaign to support Labour representatives on Prudhoe Town Council, and Northumberland County Council and actively work with other branches in the Hexham CLP to return a Labour MP for the Hexham Constituency at the next General Election.
The elected Labour Representatives in Prudhoe are:
Northumberland County Council
Prudhoe Town Council
Dorothy Dickinson, Prudhoe West & Halfway
Duncan Couchman, Castle and Eltringham
Jonathan Wheeler, Castle and Eltringham
Paddy O'Kelly, West Wylam
Angie Scott, West Wylam
Glenn Simpson, Prudhoe Hall
Carol Stephenson, Prudhoe Hall
Ignasious Varghese, Castlefields and Low Prudhoe
The branch holds regular monthly meetings in Prudhoe to discuss local issues, campaigns and Labour policies. All members are welcome to attend these friendly gatherings. You can find details of these on the Events Page.
