Our Officers

Our organisation is managed by a team of volunteers from across the valleys. They are elected by all members each year at our AGM. In addition there are branch teams in local communities, teams of policy experts who help build ideas, plus back-up teams who do delivery, data input, knock on doors or organise events.

  • James O'Flynn from Colne Valley branch is our Chair.
  • Declan White from Golcar branch Chairs the Campaign Team and is a Vice chair.
  • Joe Froggatt from Holme Valley North branch is our Treasurer.
  • Lynda Pickering from Colne Valley branch, is our Secretary, providing a link with members and with the Labour Party regionally and nationally.
  • Suzanne Gannon from Holme Valley North branch is a Vice chair with responsibility for membership. 
  • Hester Dunlop and Hayley Reid, both from Colne Valley branch, share the Women's Officer role.
  • Frances Murgatroyd from Golcar branch, is Young Labour Officer and keeps in touch with all our members from the age of 14 to their 27th birthday.
  • Eddie Kaye from Golcar branch is our Social Media Officer.

Each branch, whenever possible, sends a representative to the monthly Executive meetings.

We currently meet as a constituency on the fourth Thursday of each month, with a political discussion or speaker. In addition the branches organise regular meetings, focussing on neighbourhood issues and local campaigning.

In addition to a growing programme of activities particularly those organised by our Youth Officer and Women's Officers, we also have a number of working groups who contribute to Campaigning, Media, IT, and Fundraising. All would welcome more volunteers to help out – and have fun.
