Hello and welcome to Crewe and Nantwich Labour Party. We are a local branch of the Labour Party that organises and campaigns within the UK Parliamentary Constituency of Crewe and Nantwich which includes Crewe, Nantwich, Haslington, Shavington, Wistaston, Willaston, part of Leighton, Wybunbury and other small villages.
Part of what we do is campaign to promote our Manifesto of “For The Many, Not The Few”. We do this by involving ourselves in the same communities we live and work in. We make ourselves visible in town centres and neighbourhoods, our members attend and promote activity with local groups that do litter picks, run homeless shelters etc. and we also go to people’s doorsteps and listen to their concerns, to find out what people want from Government and the local council.
If you are already a member and want to be more involved in our campaigning, contact the address on your membership card or go to your My Labour account where you can also find a contact. If you would like to join then it’s a simple online form, just go to https://join.labour.org.uk/, there is even a discounted rate for certain circumstances.

May 2019 brought a fantastic result for Labour with the Tories losing control of the Council for the first time. Given the numerous police investigations and general poor running of the Council, this represents a fantastic opportunity for Labour and the Independents to run a better, brighter Council that serves the many not the few and do away with the rampant corruption.
