About Bournville Labour Party

Bournville Labour Party is a Branch Labour Party (BLP).

Branches get involved in a range of different activities, including selecting local council candidates, campaigning in local and national elections and discussing political issues at regular meetings.

We meet once a month and all members are welcome. Not receiving emails from Bournville Labour Party?  Please email secretary@bournville-labour.org.uk and we’ll do our best to sort things out.

Bournville ward

Our branch currently matches the boundary of the local council ward of Bournville. This means we are made up of local people from the neighbourhoods of Bournville, Cotteridge and Stirchley and campaign throughout the year in these three neighbourhoods.

Bournville ward is represented by three councillors:

  • Mary Locke (Labour) – you can follow Mary on Twitter @marylockelabour
  • Timothy Huxtable (Conservative)
  • Rob Sealey (Conservative)

Changes to local ward boundaries

The 2016 Local Government Boundary Review resulted in Bournville ward being divided into two new wards; Bournville & Cotteridge and Stirchley. The changes will come into effect in the forthcoming local elections on 3 May 2018.

Rather than split in two, we decided to stay as a single branch and campaign together to get Labour candidates elected in both wards.
