We are Kettering Constituency Labour Party, the local Labour Party organisation for the UK Parliamentary Constituency of Kettering which includes the Borough of Kettering and its surrounding towns and villages. This includes Kettering Town, Desborough, Rothwell, Burton Latimer, Barton Seagrave, Broughton, Geddington, Wilbarston, Rushton, Braybrooke as well as the other villages within the Constituency.
We're commonly known as Kettering Labour, and we work hard to get our candidates elected to public office, and are enthusiastic to serve the local communities in which we live. We're committed to #MakingLivesBetter for local residents and building a fairer society.
We have a thriving local membership, and encourage people to join us to build that brighter future and fairer society. We have a good representation of Young Labour members, and welcome people from all backgrounds and communities within the Constituency. In these Covid times, we hold regular online Zoom meetings of members, and once it is safe to do so, we will resume regular bi-monthly All Members Meetings.
We have local Labour councillors currently sitting on Desborough Town Council, Kettering Borough Council and Northamptonshire County Council, and we will be seeking election to the new North Northamptonshire Unitary Council in May 2021.
We are also part of a wider community action group of concerned local organisations and passionate individuals fighting to protect Weekley Hall Wood, the last remaining part of Rockingham Forest close to Kettering that is under threat of being lost to developers' plans to build warehouses on it.
