Busy month

We may not have updated the blog too much this month, but in the background we have been very busy.

We have some campaigning days coming up both in Havering and just over the border in the new Rainham & Dagenham Consitituency over the next month. If you are able to help out on any Saturday mornings, please contact us and let us know your availability and we will let you know where we are on that Saturday.

A group of us are off tonight to Nottingham for the Spring Conference. We will update you with regards to the events of the weekend when we return early next week.

There is a quiz night next Saturday (24th) being hosted by Romford Town Ward. It seems spaces are very limited now, so please contact me if you wish to attend at

The boundary changes in Havering that prompted the Hornchurch Constituency to disappear and be merged into three others means that Rainham and Dagenham needs to find itself a new conservative candidate. After a meeting I attended last night, it seems the timetable for this has now been set and further details will be provided as soon as I have confirmation of them.

With regards to the other two Consitituencies that we cover, Andrew Rosindell MP has already been reselected by the Romford Conservative Association in preparation for the next General Election and the new Hornchurch & Upminster Constituency has it's selection meeting on 24 March.

Finally, for those of you in Rainham and Dagenham, please check out James Brokenshire MP's campaign re: Stop Rainham Jail ( There was a public meeting on Friday 9 March which "was extremely positive and helped to demonstrate the strength of local opposition to any prison plan for Rainham." According to the website, the next event is an awareness and petition signing session outside of the Tesco Extra in Rainham on Saturday 17 March commencing at 10am. If you live in this area, and haven't yet signed the petition, please go and sign up either at Tesco's or online!
