Please accept our apologies but Regional Office have advised us that in order to be in line with national party rules we should no longer hold our AGM before the May election campaign period has ended. Therefore

Minutes of meetings
Minutes of previous meetings can be found on our Facebook members forum:
We will be relaunching our listening campaign for 2020, aiming to have 1,000 meaningful conversations with residents about their local concerns this spring. From child poverty and food banks to housing and social care, we’ve all felt the impact of ten years of austerity. But we also want to hear what people love about Eastbourne and value about our community, to inform our vision and policies over the next local election cycle.
Look out for our next newsletter for info of how you can play your part, from arranging meetings with local organisations, to chats over the garden fence with your neighbours. For now, come along to our next monthly street stall and get involved.
Labour Leadership Nomination
Following our meeting last week to nominate candidates in the race for Labour Leader and Deputy Leader, Eastbourne CLP nominated Rebecca Long-Bailey for Leader and Dr Rosena Allin-Khan for Deputy Leader. It was great to have such a positive discussion in the room and there were impassioned calls for unity and in support of different candidates.
Individual members will receive their ballots following the deadline for nominations next Friday. You can find out more about all the candidates and watch previous hustings at https://labour.org.uk/people/leadership-elections-hub-2020/.
