Chairperson Sandra Walmsley was elected Chair of Bury North CLP in 2019 and since then have dealt with the general election, the Labour leadership contest and the Coronavirus pandemic – all of these have thrown up different challenges that the CLP. When Sandra was elected Chair, her aims were to ensure Labour policy was directed from grass roots and to ensure we return a Labour government to power. As a local councillor in Moorside, Sandra sees every day the result of a decade of austerity on the people of Bury and beyond and knows that only a Labour government will change this to improve the lives of ordinary people.
