Hexham Constituency Labour Party held a successful fundraising dinner at Newton Community Hall on Friday 22nd September. There was a capacity crowd with Labour Party members and supporters from all over the Constituency in attendance.
There was a particularly warm welcome to members from Throckley and Longhorsley who have joined the CLP following recent boundary changes.
The proceeds from the event will be used to support the campaign to get a Labour MP elected in Hexham Constituency at the next General Election.
After dinner there was a lively discussion led by Kim McGuinness and Alan Milburn. The speakers discussed the key elements of a successful election campaign and we considered how to use those elements to defeat Guy Opperman at the next General Election.
