A Message from the Chairman

I'm delighted to have been elected as Chairman of Sheffield Conservative Federation that covers the five Parliamentary Constituencies of Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough, Sheffield Central, Sheffield Hallam, Sheffield Heeley and Sheffield South East.

As a lifetime Conservative voter, I am finding the role of Sheffield Conservative Chairman to be both exciting and a great honour. Sheffield has suffered over recent years because of the lack of a Conservative presence on the Council, and I hope to change that. My strategic aim for Sheffield Conservatives is to increase the membership of our Party by further engaging with the current membership and also actively encouraging new members.

To facilitate this, I have a small team of young and enthusiastic volunteers who are keen to work hard to improve the profile of the Conservative Party in Sheffield. We are formulating an excellent calendar of varied social, campaigning and fundraising events which will be held at differing locations around Sheffield so as to improve accessibility for all. This will be in addition to the regular meetings, such as the local Conservative Policy Forum, at the Heatherfield Club at Totley. So please attend those meetings that you can.

There is always a need for more helpers to deliver leaflets and canvas, even stand for Council, and if possible, any extra assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please contact us if you would be available. 

It is up to us to make Sheffield a better city for all.

Richard H. Blyth  
Chairman Sheffield Conservatives
