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 770, an increase of well over 100% since 2015, and continues to grow following the 2019 General Election.
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!
Elaine Bolton - Chair, Mid Sussex CLP

Press Release – Eleven Storeys: Same Old Tories
Burgess Hill Labour Party is concerned about the latest New River Retail proposals for an eleven storey block of flats in Burgess Hill town centre. These proposals, involving a block taller than nearby St John's Church spire, show scant regard for what Burgess Hill residents need and want. The eleven storey block is disproportionate to its surroundings and would set a precedent for other developments such as The Brow.
