STALYBRIDGE and Hyde MP Jonathan Reynolds was among the thousands of Labour Party members and supporters who were in Manchester last month (September) for the annual party conference.
As well as the chance to hear from members of the Shadow Cabinet, who address conference from the platform, conference is a chance for members to debate policy areas in a series of fringe events.
It was attended by delegates and members from across the country – including a number of members of the Stalybridge and Hyde constituency. And for members of the Stalybridge and Hyde Labour Party it included a fundraising dinner, at the Zaika restaurant, attended by more than 80 supporters from the constituency and the north west.
Mr Reynolds, who is Parliamentary Private Secretary to Labour Leader Ed Miliband, attended and took part in a number of events during the five-day conference.
Among the highlights were events that looked at public transport across the Greater Manchester region and the importance of the manufacturing sector.
Mr Reynolds also attended events hosted by the Christian Socialist Movement, the Co-operative Party and Young Labour. On the first day of conference it was also Mr Reynolds’ sad task to lead a minute’s silence in recognition of the police officers who lost their lives while on duty in Mottram.
