WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
The Mid Sussex Labour Party covers Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and surrounding villages. We have a branch of the party in each of the three towns.
Our membership is now over 760, an increase of well over 100% since the Elections in May 2015, and is continuing to grow each week.
Mid Sussex Labour is an active party, initiating campaigns on both national and local issues, such as Rail Privatisation, Living Wage, local parking charges and Town Centre redevelopment plans which have received a lot of local support.
We are an eclectic bunch of people who all believe in Labour’s core values and try to find modern solutions to uphold those values and are very vocal in getting our views and ideas heard.
As well as being Labour supporters and activists we are very sociable and hold regular events including Summer and Christmas parties and Quiz Nights, and are looking at more informal ways of engaging people in discussion such as meetings in pubs or coffee bars.
We welcome all new members and value those we already have, everyone who joins us can be certain of a very warm welcome, and everybody’s voice will be heard.
Life’s not always as fair as we’d like - but society should be!
Pam Haigh - Chair, Mid Sussex CLP
Suzanne Nicolson - Vice Chair, Mid Sussex CLP

Labour calls for entire Tory cabinet to resign over housing ‘debacle’
The Labour Party is dismayed at the way Mid Sussex District Council is handling the District Plan. It's clear that the Conservative run District Council has disastrously failed to get the plan approved, for a second time.
Chair of Mid Sussex Labour Pam Haigh called for those Councillors responsible, including all of the Mid Sussex District Council Cabinet to accept their failure and resign as Councillors immediately,
Great coverage in the Mid Sussex Times
Watch out for the 2nd installment this week!
Shoppers share their worries for the NHS and sign petition
"Campaigners headed to Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Hassocks and Storrington. Hundreds of shoppers signed a petition calling on the government to spend more on the NHS as Sussex Labour Party members joined a national day of action and protests"
Great write up in the Mid Sussex Times.
Local Party members from accross Mid Sussex braved the cold and were out in force on Sat 21st January, handing out leaflets calling on Theresa May to give the NHS and social care the funding it needs.
It is jaw dropping that when the NHS is facing the biggest financial squeeze in its history that the Tories’ Autumn Statement contained not a single penny of extra investment for social care and the NHS.
The NHS is underfunded and understaffed. Tory health policies are failing our health and social care services.
Labour created the NHS to care for us all, now its time to care for the NHS.
