About Rugby Labour
Rugby Labour stands for a bold vision for Rugby.
Only Labour will stand up against Tory Cuts and protect the services that people rely on. We want to rebuild our communities and transform our borough. Whether it’s building housing that our families can afford, protecting Rugby’s precious parks and open spaces, improving waste collection and tackling flytipping, Rugby deserves better.
4th May 2023 – Rugby Borough Council Election Candidates
We have candidates in each of the 14 Rugby Borough Council wards being contested this year:
|Wolston & The Lawford
|Revel & Binley Woods
|Rokeby & Overslade
|Coton & Boughton
|Admirals & Cawston
|Newbold & Brownsover
We need local fire and ambulance services, support for our police officers and health services accessible for everyone
There’s only one way you can make this bold vision happen – by voting Labour in the Council Elections each year. These elections are your chance to send a powerful message, to have your say on eight years of Conservative cuts to public services, failed privatisations and falling living standards. Our members are our candidates and are Local people who understand local issues, who work in local businesses and who know about local services because they use them too.
With local services under increasing pressure services for children and young people are disappearing fast. Rugby Labour’s vision includes a Youth Strategy to put the needs of Rugby’s younger community front and centre. Labour will: Continue to oppose the Conservative’s decision to close children’s centres in Rugby. Promote our parks and green spaces as places where children can play and take part in sport. Review the air quality around the gyratory and promote alternative methods of transport to make sure our children grow up breathing clean air.
We would expand educational spaces in the town like Rugby Art Gallery and Museum so that we can have more great educational resources for children of all backgrounds.
Support the expansion of community projects which give meals in school holidays to children who receive free school meals during term-time.
Tory austerity has decimated local councils.
Labour will push back on this issue. Affordable and social house building for local people is not part of Rugby’s housing boom. Community safety is at risk after cuts to the number of police officers. Older people are facing cuts to social care. Cuts to family services are hitting people hard.
ONLY with your support, YOUR VOTE can we change this.
