Emma Ware was selected as Parliamentary Spokesperson for Twickenham on 12th October 2022.
Emma was born and brought up in Twickenham and lived in the area for the first 27 years of her life. In her youth she played cricket for Surrey and Hampton Wick Royals!
She has served in the British Army as a Data Operator in the Royal Signals. Her military experiences imbued her with a sense of duty and public service that she has carried into her civilian life. She worked in Renewable Energy Finance as a team leader and has a great understanding and ongoing interest in the evolution of the renewable energy market and is a member of the Conservative Environment Network.
In 2019 Emma became an active party member while taking a break from employment to bring up her 5 children. Working as a community volunteer and campaign leader she fought to have polling stations taken out of schools, cafes and facilities opened in local parks and for the reopening of accessible parking on Epsom Downs.
During the pandemic, when the schools were closed, Emma worked with Conservative colleagues to offer online learning to children across Surrey. Invicta Academy delivered 6,000 free learning opportunities to children across Surrey and was commended by the Education Secretary and the Prime Minister.
Emma stood in the Surrey County Council elections in 2021 missing out by just 9 votes. Her loss gave her the opportunity to become the Chairman of Epsom & Ewell Conservative Association for 2 years. She relaunched the CPF and YC branches and recruited new activists and assembled an officer team with a YC majority.
Emma is also 2-time winner of the national Conservative Policy Forum policy pitch competition and was included in the 2021 CPF yearbook. Her winning policies included solutions in the recycling market, fresh thinking in social care sector and second chances for young offenders. She has also held the position of Chairman of the Surrey CPF.
Running concurrently to her role as Parliamentary Spokesperson Emma is taking a Law degree and King’s College London. When taking a break Emma likes to spend time with her husband, 5 children and 2 beagles in Bushy Park. She is an occasional cricketer and helps with the colts’ section of her local club, otherwise she can be found writing her blog, increasing her flag collection or trying to teach her son the correct way to play a cover drive.
