Brexit Night Celebration Dinner




On Friday 31 January 2020 the United Kingdom officially leaves the European Union.

For the majority of Conservative members who voted for Brexit, this will be a moment of joy and celebration. And for those who voted to Remain, I believe most will be relieved the matter is finally drawing to a close, though much work lies ahead. 

The mark this historic occasion, the Association will be hosting a Brexit Night Dinner where our guest oh honour will be the former Minister of State in the Department for Exiting the European Union, and one of the Directors of the Vote Leave campaign, Steve Baker MP (see HERE for more information).

Details as follows:

Friday 31 January 2020
Arrival drinks / reception: 7pm
Speech by Rt Hon Steve Baker MP: 7.30pm

This will be an evening of celebration to mark the end of a turbulent time for our Party and country, and the start of new and exciting journey with a majority Conservative government.

2019 Grand Christmas Fundraiser

Following an amazing Conservative Party Conference in Manchester we are now 15% ahead in the polls and by a majority of over 2:1 people prefer a Conservative government led by Boris Johnson to any of the alternatives. 

But our opponents are running scared. Due to the requirements of the Fixed Term Parliaments Act we have a government held hostage without a majority and an opposition unwilling to call an election for fear of losing. It is a ridiculous situation; damaging to our
democracy and our country and it must be addressed soon.

Locally we are ready! 

Our canvass cards, calling cards, window and garden posters and letterheads are all printed and ready to go. Our first two leaflets have been designed and signed off and are with the printer awaiting the date of the election. 

Our annual Christmas Fundraiser not only offers great prizes but brings in much-needed cash at the end of the year, which we desperately need as we will soon be financing our third general election in four years.

We have some super prizes this year including:

¨ Luxury John Lewis Christmas Hamper (or £400 cash)
¨ Dinner at the Top of the Shard
¨ Afternoon Tea at Hotel du Vin
¨ and many runner-up prizes including Champagne, Wine, Port, Pimms and Gin
(all signed by leading members of the government!)

Tickets are £2 each. Given the circumstances and what we will soon have to face I hope you will be as generous as you can afford. Buying your tickets online could not be simpler, just click below to use your credit/debit card or PayPal. If you would rather make a donation than participating in the draw, there is an option to do that instead.

Thank you for your support.

Donate to our Relaunch and Renewal Campaign

Today we are starting our "Relaunch and Renewal Campaign". Over the next two weeks we will be reaching out to thousands of former members and supporters, inviting them to come home to the Conservative Party and help us rebuild for the future; a Conservative Party that's on the side of the hardworking majority, those who do what's right, play by the rules and pay their fair share.   

A small donation starting from just £3 will help us contact former Conservatives and ask them to rejoin us. These are the people we need to defeat Jeremy Corbyn and keep Labour out of power. 

Please donate if you can by clicking on the button below.

Membership and the Leadership Ballot

The West Kent Office is receiving a lot of email traffic regarding membership and the forthcoming leadership ballot. We thought the following information might be useful to members.

Our Members of Parliament are presently voting in the leadership ballot. After each round of voting the lowest placed candidate will be eliminated. When there are two candidates remaining their names will be put to the wider membership in ballot. This will be a postal ballot of all paid-up and qualifying members. 

1. In order to vote in the leadership election, a party member must be 'paid-up' and have been a member for a minimum three months. There are no exceptions to this rule, which was introduced to prevent "entryism" of the kind which secured the election of Jeremy Corbyn. 
2. Ballot papers will be issued in the first week of July 2019 and the ballot will close on 22 July 2019. Therefore, in order to qualify to vote, you will have need to have been a member since 22 April 2019. If your membership has lapsed and you rejoined the party after 22 April 2019 you will not be entitled to vote. 
3. There will be a series of regional hustings where members can hear the candidates and have the opportunity to ask questions. To attend you will need to pre-register. CCHQ sent all members an email on Friday 14 June 2019 inviting them to register. If you did not receive the email please check your spam or trash folder. However, you can register to attend by clicking HERE  

4. To register you will need to enter your name, address, contact details (email and telephone), the Association of which you are a member and your membership number. You may choose to attend any of the hustings, not just the one most local to you if another date is more convenient. However you may only book to attend one event.  
5. Your membership number is printed on your membership card, which should have been sent to you by Conservative Campaign HQ in London. To assist, the West Kent office sent you an email on Monday 17 June 2019 with your membership number in the body of the text. If you did not receive a membership card and did not receive our email, then you should contact for further advice and guidance. 
6. As far as I am aware, proxy voting is not allowed. If you are likely to be away for the duration of the postal ballot you could ask a family member, friend or neighbour with a spare key to forward the ballot paper to your holiday address. If this is not possible, I would suggest you contact for advice.

I hope the above is helpful. The leadership ballot, process, registration, hustings and the count are all being handled by CCHQ, not the local Association or the West Kent Office. If you have any questions please direct these to CCHQ in London via this email address:

Thank you
