Young Conservatives: An Introduction
The future of the Conservative Party lies in its younger members, namely those under the age of thirty, who number over 15,000 nationwide.
Our members in Higham Ferrers are active both across the UK and locally. Peter Bone MP & Local Councillors maintain that they would not have won their seats without our support.
Higham Ferrers and Wellingborough Young Conservatives play a vital role in the Joint Task Force sessions with our colleagues in Corby & East Northamptonshire on Saturday mornings, supporting candidates in all tiers of elections by knocking on doors and delivering leaflets. This provides a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and learn about local & national politics.
In addition to aiding electioneering and fundraising, we hold our own social events locally, helping to bring together current and potential activists. Without a doubt, these are a great stepping stone into politics and a chance to meet like-minded people, in a relaxed environment.
If you want to help your local community, take your political interest further, we are an excellent organisation to be a part of. If you are interested in becoming involved or have any questions please do get in touch. Also see Wellingborough Young Conservatives.
Message from Harriet
I hope to organise a number of social events that will appeal to everyone, encouraging young people locally to become politically active and gain hands on experience of campaigning and other activities. Anyone interested in getting involved, please contact me at @harrietpentland.
