The Northern Dales branch of the Derbyshire Dales CLP started up in October 2014 to cover the wards of Hathersage/Eyam, Bradwell, Tideswell, Caver and Litton/Longstone.
We held 6 branch meetings over the year plus two public meetings to support Andy Botham's parliamentary campaign.
These public events, in Bradwell and Hathersage, were the first political meetings to be held in either village for many years.
In March, April and May 2015, some 40 people were involved in leafleting during the General Election campaign. Following the election, as elsewhere branch membership has tripled and there are over 200 members and supporters on our local mailing list.
