Erith and Thamesmead Labour
Erith and Thamesmead is an area with a rich history and vibrant communities. Our parliamentary constituency covers a wide area including Thamesmead, Abbey Wood, Lesnes Abbey, Belvedere, Northumberland Heath, Erith, and Plumstead, with each area having its own identity and local history. We are incredibly proud to be represented by our 21 Labour Councillors and the fantastic Teresa Pearce MP, who fight hard to stand up for our community.
The constituency combines electoral wards from two boroughs, the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the London Borough of Bexley. The eight electoral wards of Erith and Thamesmead are: Abbey Wood, Plumstead, Thamesmead Moorings (Greenwich), Belvedere, Erith, Lesnes Abbey, Northumberland Heath and Thamesmead East (Bexley).
John Austin was the MP for this constituency from its creation for the 1997 general election until he stepped down at the May 2010 election. The seat has been held ever since for Labour by Teresa Pearce MP.
Teresa works tirelessly to promote Erith and Thamesmead in Parliament and campaigns on issues that affect our area. She has helped thousands of constituents through the Tory cuts and is a strong local voice for residents in Parliament.
Our local party is one of action, and we work tirelessly with our elected representatives and other organisations to ensure that our area is safe and prosperous. We meet regularly and discuss current affairs and policy, and campaign on issues that threaten our community. The Labour Party in Erith and Thamesmead meet monthly and each individual ward also meets locally each month. We often host social and fundraising events and are out knocking on doors across Erith and Thamesmead regularly.
As a party we believe that by working together we can achieve more than we can alone. Together we can change our community and our country so that it works for you, not just a powerful few at the top. Why not join us and help. For more information on how to join, and why you should, click here.
