Last Thursday we had a social to welcome the hundreds of new members that have joined Southampton Labour Party since the election.
I'm the Campaign Organiser at Southampton Labour Party, and it was wonderful to be able to welcome so many new and enthusiastic members to our team.
I know that if we want to keep Southampton Council in Labour's hands come 2016 we need every single one of our members. Our strength as a party comes from the time that they tirelessly give to us week after week.
Judging from the group that came together on Thursday night it is clear to see that our party here in Southampton is thriving. Our new members range from teachers to nurses, from small business owners to students and all were there because they believe that the Labour Party offers a better future for the people of Southampton.
Alan Whitehead, MP for Southampton Test, was there to say a few words about what he thinks it means to be part of our movement. He attributed his increased majority in Southampton Test at the current election to the dedication of Southampton Labour party activists, and told the new members 'This is now your party too'.
