AGM Success

Gill Roles- top, our new chair, and
outgoing chair Jean Couture.
The East Sussex Co-operative Party branch held it's AGM today in Eastbourne.  Long standing chair, Jean Couture stood down after many years service, and Gill Roles, a former Parliamentary and European Candidate  for Eastbourne/East Sussex  was elected in her place. A vote of thanks for her service was passed, and Jean will continue as vice chair.

The branch is very healthy in terms of both membership and finances, and a number of campaigns and events were discussed for the year including:
  • Party street stalls and stalls at Labour and Fairtrade events to promote our agenda
  • A barbecue in Heathfield over the summer break
  • A repeat of our Fairtrade Coffee Morning
  • Exploring options for Co-operative speakers to come to joint Co-op/Labour Party meetings
  • Making sure we field Labour and Co-op Candidates in next year's County Council election
The meeting ended with a moment of silence to remember Jo Cox, and an agreement to add our voice to those tributes to her service to our movement.
