If only for the summer BBQ...

Receiving some agenda papers by email this morning has prompted me to post about the local conservatives in South West Farnham. We're called a 'branch' of the local constituency party, and have a committee made up of about 10 of the over 100 members locally.

However, we punch above our weight! :-) During elections we get out and knock at least once on all the doors in the area, we send literature to all the homes so that everyone knows what we are actively doing, and (most importantly some might say), we hold fund raising events throughout the year that have garnered something of a reputation in the constituency.

Especially the Summer BBQ!

Held on a Sunday lunchtime and afternoon in July each year (13th in 2008), it inevitably turns out wonderful, and usually attracts over 130 people. Local councillors can of course be found behind the barbecue itself, and the bar... and eating and drinking the contents of the barbecue and bar.

If you are interested in helping us out in our campaigning on local issues, and getting to know like minded people, do email me or go to the South West Surrey constituency website. We'd love to hear from you, especially if you're under 60!
