North West Durham Constituency Labour Party organises into smaller units called branches. We have 7 formal branches: Burnopfield & Dipton; Greater Consett; Crook; Lanchester, Burnhope & Castleside; Tow Law; Willington & Hunwick and Weardale. We also have one informal branch, Langley Park, looking to become formally established very soon.
