Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW of­fi­cers were ap­pointed at a meet­ing of Labour party mem­bers in Mac­cles­field.

Tim Hol­land and Rob Ver­non were se­lected to re­place re­tir­ing chair­man Sue Dale and secretary Richard Wat­son at the AGM of the north branch of the Labour Party for the Mac­cles­field con­stituency.

Tim Hol­land, 46, said: “Over the next year I am hop­ing we can build lo­cally on the up­surge in Labour Party mem­ber­ship and new sense of pur­pose sur­round­ing the emer­gence of Jeremy Cor­byn as party leader.

“In par­tic­u­lar I shall be try­ing as chair­man to be re­spon­sive to the wishes of the grass roots mem­ber­ship and con­stituents gen­er­ally.”

Rob Ver­non, 18, said that he’s de­lighted to be in­volved with the party at a time when it has seen an in­crease in young mem­bers since Jeremy Cor­byn be­came leader.

He said: “I’m very ex­cited to be in­volved at what is an im­por­tant time for the Labour Party.

“We’ll be look­ing to in­crease ac­tiv­ity within the area and re­ally cap­i­talise on the huge in­crease in mem­ber­ship, much of which has come from young peo­ple, that we’ve seen join­ing the party since last May.”
