Becoming a Coop Councillor: Event for Local Labour and Cooperative Members  

On Thursday 24th November, Waltham Forest Co-op Party are holding a ‘Be a Co-op Councillor’ evening in Walthamstow. This is an event for Labour and Co-operative party members in Waltham Forest who are interested in standing as Labour and Co-operative candidates at the next London local elections in May 2018. 

As well as Labour and Cooperative MPs who represent the cooperative tradition within the Labour movement, there are also hundreds of Labour and Cooperative councillors around Britain. This event will be a great opportunity to hear about the role of the Co-op in local government and more generally what it is like to be a Councillor, and how Labour Party and Co-op Party selections work. If you are interested in attending this event, then please register online so that the organisers can get an idea of the numbers, as space is limited.
