I'm delighted to have been elected as Chairman of the newly constituted Sheffield Conservative Federation that covers the five Parliamentary Constituencies of Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough, Sheffield Central, Sheffield Hallam, Sheffield Heeley and Sheffield South East.
The Association is made up of many members, partners and supporters throughout Sheffield, who help campaign, attend events and help with the running of the party locally here in Sheffield. I am pleased to announce that Theresa May and the Conservative Party Board have agreed to fund a full time Campaign Manager, Will Lockwood, who joined our organisation at the beginning of September and is dedicated to ensuring our party is more focused on strengthening our political representation and policies here in Sheffield.
Will will be based in our new Constituency office at 68 Carwood Road, Sheffield and we are truly grateful to to a local business man for this donation.
It's been an eventful year! and whilst we did not get the increased majority in Parliament that we were hoping for, we still have a clear mandate to build a more secure and prosperous nation.
Brexit is still dominating the political agenda. It is our duty to guide the country through the crucial Brexit talks and deliver on the will of the British people by taking the UK out of the EU. It is important that we come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country – securing a new partnership with the EU which guarantees our long-term prosperity.
As this fascinating political period continues, now is a really exciting time to be involved in the Conservative Party and as a Member you play a vital role in helping us deliver for Britain. Our Members are our strongest and most important advocates - and with your help, we can continue to build a freer, fairer and more responsible society as we tackle the challenges and opportunities of a new era in British politics.
Getting involved with the Sheffield Conservative Association is a great opportunity to meet fellow Conservatives and gives you the chance to get involved in campaigns that make a difference in our local area. You can join the local Conservative Policy Forum, attend one of our many social events throughout the year or even put your name forward to stand for election yourself as a Conservative candidate.
This is a great country, and our best days lie ahead – but only if we work together. Thank you.
Chairman Sheffield Conservatives
