Cheers, Charlie!

A teenager has become the chair of the Labour Party’s Ludlow branch. Charlie Scotton-Peters (15) from Bridgnorth was elected to the position of chair in June.

Local Labour councillor Julia Buckley has worked with Charlie on several campaigns for local and national elections as well as to protect important services such as the Midwife-led units, the local swimming pool and historical community assets. Cllr Buckley says, “Charlie won the election for chair with an impressive majority (37-18). His election has mobilised our members and personifies the youthful, positive outlook of Labour in Shropshire.”

By contrast, the newly elected secretary, Joy Nisbet, is one of the older members of the county’s Labour Party – she joined the party in 1945.
