August 2023 Newsletter

Thank you for your continued support of the Labour Party, We hope you are doing well, and enjoying what you can of the “Summer” we are getting locally.

Clacton Labour have been busy listening to our constituents and letting them know what a Labour government can do for them!

Below you will see some of our latest efforts.

Latest News

Clacton Carnival

Unfortunately the weather got the better of us on the 5th August but we were able to set up our stand on 13th August on the West Greensward. My thanks to the party members who ran the stall. This was again a great opportunity to listen to voters, meet potential members and share our vision for the future of our area. It is important that we are visible and part of our community. The message that came across from voters is that change is needed and we need a General Election as soon as possible..

Website Launch

Our communications team have been working tirelessly to give our CLP more of an online presence. In addition to uploading frequently to the facebook and instagram accounts we already have, we also now have a tiktok account, where we plan to upload some short/fun videos of up campaigning or things going on in the constituency. Martin Suker, our Communications Officer has also just this week launched a new vibrant and functional website. We hope for this to be the centre for information for the CLP, transitioning away from the facebook members only page.

If you would like to be involved in creating content for the website/social media, please email Martin – [email protected] 

If you havent yet seen the new website you can use the button below and we would love your feedback.

Selection of Parliamentary Candidate

The NEC has recently started the candidate selection process for a number of non-priority parliamentary seats which includes Clacton-on-Sea. If you wish to be considered and are a member, please complete the expression of interest form. An email was sent to all members on the 28th July or you can apply here.

Future Events

Guest Speakers at our next 2 AMMs

Next Month Our AMM is travelling across the constituency to a new venue in Frinton. We will be discussing general party business as well as hearing from our guest speaker, Pam Cox.

Pam is the Colchester Prospective Parliamentary Candidate, and she’s very much looking forward to meeting you. She will share how she is campaigning for the next General Election. This meeting is open to all members and affiliates. Please note that affiliates cannot vote on any party business.

We are also holding a Diversity and inclusion training at our August AMM hosted by Catherine Bickersteth, Colchester CLP’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion officer.

Please RSVP to each event, which are also available to attend online.


Our team has some great ideas of how to win votes in the constituency, however…


We need help with campaigning events, canvassing sessions and administration tasks in the office. If you have some time spare, please use the link below or email Matt our Secretary.


With a General Election looming, our team are preparing themselves for some intense campaigning to get Clacton a new Labour MP. To support us in our efforts, should you be able to afford it, we would appreciate and gratefully accept all donations!

Thank you for all you do for The Labour Party!
