Welcome to the home of your local Labour Party

Hastings and Rye

Hastings and Rye are vibrant areas within the East Sussex with vast natural landscapes, significant historical ties, a rich culture and social cohesion unlike any other towns. Check out our events page for varied and exciting events hosted by Hastings and Rye Labour.

Get Involved

The Labour Party's foundations are built upon the backs of thousands hard working volunteers. Check out our events for ways to join up, get involved or donate to the local party. Donations are always welcome and are key to funding our election activities. Thank you to anyone who considers this.

Your Hastings Borough Councillors

Your Hastings Borough Council has 24 Labour councillors representing you across the borough, all of whom work hard to ensure the best services and support are provided to all residents of Hastings.

Your Rother District Councillors

Unfortunately, Rother District Council lacks Labour representation currently. But we do have some absolutely stellar candidates for the 2019 Elections and we're always on the lookout for more. Contact your Branch Secretary for information on how you can become a councillor.

For the many, not the few.

This is our vision for a country that works for the many, not just the privileged few. With Labour, we’ll build a country where we invest our wealth to give everyone the best chance. That means building the homes we need to rent and buy, keeping our communities safe with more police officers, giving our children’s schools the funding they badly need, and restoring the NHS to its place as the envy of the world.
