Janet Cullen

Janet Cullen, Chair

For the last twenty-five years I was a headteacher in a large inner-city comprehensive school. I want to support the local party in engaging with and contributing actively to national policy. The Labour Party is at a crossroads and I look forward to using my public sector experience to contribute going forward.


Margaret Gallagher

Margaret Gallagher, Treasurer

I have been a member of the Labour Party since 1980 and undertaken various roles within the branch since then. I have been actively campaigning for the Labour Party throughout this time.


Steve Ritchie

Steve Ritchie, Secretary & Environment

I am a chartered Mechanical Engineer managing a small Renewable Energy company based in Berkhamsted. I am passionate about climate change issues and see the Labour party as offering the best way forward to ensure both net 0 and a fair society for the many in the emerging energy revolution. I will campaign against all forms of cronyism where private companies capitalise on the rapid changes necessary.


Phil Parry

Phil Parry, Membership & Press Officer

Phil has been a member of the Party for many years and is currently the Officer for Membership & Vice Chair and Press Officer, having previously been the Chair of Berkhamsted and Tring Branch. I joined originally because I was appalled by the gross social inequality I was witnessing and I remain a member because Labour was and remains the only Party that is committed to tackling it head-on. My job is primarily to welcome new members and make them feel at home in their new Party and encourage them to become involved whether it be campaigning or in a supportive role. I look forward to meeting you.


Jeni Swift Gillet

Jeni Swift Gillet, Disability Officer

I have long been familiar with the 2010 Equalites Act which came into effect in April 2011. That was a great leap forward in giving rights and support to a broad spectrum of people with all kinds of disability both physical and mental. Despite the law offering protection the rules are often not adhered to and disabled people continue to experience discrimination in the workplace and in social situations. Since qualifying for a Blue Badge due to mobility issues I have experienced such discrimination at first hand and this has made me more aware of the situation. I want our CLP members to become aware of the problems faced by disabled citizens (including our members) on a daily basis. In order to start achieving this I aim to set up training sessions so that we can all become know more of the discriminations suffered so that we can recognise what is happening and what we can do to help.

Rebecca Mackenzie

Rebecca Mackenzie, Policy

For the last nearly 20 years I have been working as a therapeutic Counsellor while also raising my 2 children. I come from a Labour supporting family, and have always held Labour values of Equality & Justice. Green issues have also been a huge concern for me over many years. I think this country & this planet desperately needs the next UK government to be a Labour one. I am passionately interested in discussing & developing Labour Party Policy with my fellow party members, and will be working hard to ensure we effectively feed in to the policy making process.


Ted Carroll

Ted Carroll, Social Media

I have lived in Berkhamsted for 37 years and have had a career in IT. In my last 20 years of work, I have worked across many areas of government and have a reasonable understanding of Policing, Justice, Transport, Home Office and Government Web Sites. I have been a member of the Labour Party since the late 70s but I have not been active recently until I retired in 2020. I believe passionately that The Labour Party is our only chance to get a fairer government and we should use technology and Social media to get our message across, particularly to young people.
