Labour move­ment’s history group cre­ated

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

FOUR Lough­bor­ough Labour Party mem­bers - Jill Vin­cent, Mike Cahill, Dave Neville and Mike Shuker - are plan­ning to es­tab­lish a group to re­search and pre­serve the history of the Labour Move­ment in Le­ices­ter­shire.

A for­ma­tion meet­ing, open to any­one in­ter­ested in Labour History, will be held from 7pm un­til 8.30pm on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 8, at the Swan in the Rushes, 21 The Rushes, Lough­bor­ough.

Work has al­ready en­com­passed the for­ma­tion of Labour Par­ties in Lough­bor­ough and Bos­worth at the end of World War One; the pres­ence of a Suf­fragette cam­paign to un­seat Lough­bor­ough’s sit­ting Lib­eral MP in 1910 and the sup­port from Le­ices­ter­shire for the work­ers locked out of work by their em­ploy­ers in Dublin in 1913.

The so­ci­ety hopes to pub­lish much of this work and en­cour­age fur­ther re­search.
