Nearly half the members present were attending their first meeting.
New member Graeme Tolley, from Banningham, said: "I have been a Labour supporter for a long time but the general election result made me realise that, if I want to see a much more caring government which genuinely puts people first, then I need to help play a role in electing one, so I joined the party.
"My first meeting was great - everyone was so welcoming and there was a speaker from Unite who talked about how important union rights are for employees in small companies in rural and coastal businesses."
