All year, every year, all Whitley ward

News and views from Whitley's Labour councillor team

Labour in Whitley ward has a
strong track record.  We are proud of representing Whitley ward.  We know these are tough times for everyone but we will always do our best to support you and will consistently campaign for good jobs, more and better housing and to protect services as much as possible from the impact of the national Conservative government's policies.

With your help your councillors Rachel Eden, Kelly Edwards and Mike Orton will work hard to stand up for Whitley.  However we need your help! Please consider getting involved to help us stand up to the Conservatives and their Liberal Democrat supporters in government, we need new volunteers to help deliver our leaflets, to display posters at election time and to keep in touch with us about the issues in your road all year round.

On this site you can also find recent news, get in touch and find out more about us, other useful local information - from weather to useful contact numbers!
