I first joined the Conservative Party aged 16 as a Young Conservative in Epsom Constituency where I went on to become Divisional Young Conservative Chairman, so I have been a life-long supporter of the Conservative Party.
I joined the Woking Constituency Conservative Association in 2014, at the time to be part of our campaigning team for the 2015 General Election where our team helped secure the Eastleigh seat against strong LibDem opposition and continued to be part of the subsequent General Election campaign teams in 2017 and 2019 also supporting local government campaigns across the Constituency.
In 2018, I was co-opted on to the Association Officers Committee as Membership Officer and along with the added roll of Data Protection Officer I continue to look after Membership today, making sure that we maximise membership renewals and welcome new members. I am also a Blue Ribbon Patron.
