Gareth Wakelam – Treasurer

Gareth grew up in the green rolling hills of the Peak District, just outside Sheffield, and has been a left-leaning Labour supporter from a young age. It was during a 7-year period living in Edinburgh that Gareth became an active Labour member and campaigned for the first time in the 2017 General Election, before moving to Woking in late 2018 for his work as an engineer.

During the 2019 election, Gareth was inspired to see such a committed group of local Labour members out campaigning and, upon joining them, received a warm welcome from the group. In this new role, he is looking forward to helping build our movement to empower local communities and develop year-round links that will bring real positive change to the area.
