First Monday is back!
Our monthly event bringing together local members and others interested in Conservative politics to hear from an interesting speaker and chat about politics. Currently, these are online events but usually we meet in person.
Monday 7 December, 6pm
Rob Colvile, co-author of the 2019 Conservative manifesto, Sunday Times columnist and Director of the Centre for Policy Studies
Join our call to hear about the process of putting the General Election manifesto together, and to discuss how the first (and very eventful!) year of this administration is going.
