An Update from the Chairman

Welcome to the new Grantham & Stamford Website. We will be using this website to keep in touch with members about events, policies and issues that matter to Conservatives across the constituency. Members are the lifeblood of the Conservative Party and I want each and every member to feel part of the team and involved in what we do.

There's no doubt that we are living through turbulent times, the Conservative led coalition government has had many difficult decisions to make and attracts derision for over-action and inaction in equal measure.

Having spent the last few months campaigning there is no doubt that issues such as the EU and Gay marriage are contentious and are key discussion points on the doorstep.

Over the next 12 months we have ambitious plans for our association: a renewed focus on membership; stepping up campaigning; a real push to connect our elected representatives with the electorate. These bold aims will require your support and input and I would ask that you get in touch if you have any ideas and suggestions.

The Conservative Party is built on its grassroots, not councillors and MPs, so please get involved and help us to make a difference now and in 2015 to return the majority in Parliament that the country so desperately needs.
