About us

The Grantham and Stamford Conservative Association is the the local organisation of the Conservative Party within the Grantham and Stamford Constituency.

The map on our home page shows the geographical area which the constituency covers.

Our Party seeks to advance opportunity, nurture responsibility and protect security. By trusting people, we help individuals grow stronger; by sharing responsibility, we help society grow stronger. We believe that there is such a thing as society, but it is not the same thing as the state. Our Party stands for a free society and a strong nation state; we want to give people more opportunity and power over their lives, to make families stronger and society more responsible, and to make Britain safer and greener.


The Grantham & Stamford Conservative Association is an active and lively Association responsible for promoting the Conservative cause and working for the return of Conservative representatives to Westminster and Local Government. We involve people of all ages and from all walks of life. The Association and its branches host a wide range of events in the constituency both social and political.


The Association is managed and administered, on a day-to-day basis, by the Officers of the Association; who in turn are responsible to the Association's Executive Council.

The Executive Council is the governing body of the Association and consists of the Association's President, Officers, Branch and Committee Representatives, representatives of the various Conservative Groups on district and county councils, the Member of Parliament, and a number of other individuals and co-optees.
