"WILTSHIRE DESERVES BETTER"
Advocating Change. Fighting for Equality.
About Our CLP
The Labour Party is a century old political organisation, born out of the trade union movement and built on equality, social justice and compassion. We are a movement of over half a million members working to elect a Government that puts those shared values into action.
The South West Wiltshire CLP acts as a conduit for local Labour Parties and helps celebrate the positive social, environmental and economic impact that Labour members and councillors are having for OUR communities.

Working for a Better, Fairer, Wiltshire
Westbury East Westbury Town Council and Wiltshire Unitary Council
My name is Michael Amos and I am standing as a Labour Councillor at the Local Elections on the 6th May. I wanted to share a bit about myself and why I believe I would be a great advocate for the people of my constituency if elected. I have lived in the UK for almost 19 years having travelled here from Australia in 2002, I have lived in the Westbury area since 2009 – First In Leigh Park and now in Dilton Marsh with my wife and daughter. I have been a Westbury Town Councillor for the past 2 years, been a member of the Events working Group and sit on the Policy and Resources committee. In my role as a councillor I have strived to put Westbury on the map in a positive way, working to showcase local success stories, like to Open Westbury Food Project and The Whitehorse Soapbox, and celebrate action groups like POPCAN, TEAM 10, and I currently sit as a trustee of The Westbury Community Project and the Big Bright Future Trust. In my day job I run an ethical clearance company that has equipped over 900 schools in 19 countries including several here in Westbury and Dilton Marsh. I am standing as a Labour Councillor because I believe that politics, especially at a local level, can be incredibly effective and combining the talents of passionate hardworking councillors with the guiding principles of fairness and equality that the Labour movement cherishes is a powerful tool for positive change.
I would ask you to consider my candidacy but first and foremost I would like to ask you to register to vote because whoever you vote for, local elections matter and its one of the ways you can make a difference for your family and your community. Myself and my fellow Labour candidates will be sharing a few more videos in the coming weeks giving detail to our manifesto buts its also about what you want please get in touch via Facebook and share your issues and concerns, local councillors are here to advocate on your behalf not just espouse our own opinions and we look forward to representing you. Thank You.
“Our manifesto draws on expertise across all sectors and sets out a positive vision of hope for the future. Instead of running down vital youth services or closing much valued public assets, we will lobby for fair funding, ensuring value for money for public services, and put people and planet at the heart of all our decisions”.
