Team Holgate

Labour's campaign for the Holgate by-election got off to a flying start this week. Dozens of local activists have been taking Labour's message of hope to people in Holgate, and have been responding to their concerns about local issues. We look forward to being able to speak with many more people over the coming weeks.

Sonja Crisp, who served for 11 years on the Council, announced her retirement on Friday 5 January. She said: “I have been a part of a very productive and dedicated team of three Labour Councillors for Holgate Ward and am proud of the things we have been able to achieve for local residents.

Voters in Holgate will go to the polls to choose an new councillor on Thursday 15 February. Holgate Labour Party members will be choosing the candidate to contest the vacancy on the evening on Friday 12 January.
