A huge welcome to our new members of the Derbyshire Dales Labour.
Here we will cover what you need to know and do as a new member and give you the main links to the most useful and important pages you will need.
We meet regularly both as local branches and the whole constituency - just look at our events page which shows where you can join in. We also have a youth (14-26) section and women's forum. Please come and meet us.

In this 'Jargon Buster' we will explain some of the most commonly used terms in meetings or in the news, so you will be up to speed as quickly as possible. If there are any terms that we have missed or you just simply wanting clarifying, just leave them in the comments section of this page and we will add them.
