I’ve just spent an enjoyable afternoon with friends and colleagues at the Conservative fundraising event organised by the Roman Bank Branch of N.E.C.C.A. (North East Cambs Conservative Association.)
It was good to see such a fantastic turnout and so many new members / faces as well. The weather held out long enough that we enjoyed good food and drink and lots of chatter. Steve Barclay MP stopped by and got a big cheer for his astonishing win this week, increasing his vote dramatically.
Then it was hot tub and sauna time as those who remembered to bring cozzies took the plunge, steam and soak challenge.
Conservative membership has been up all year, but the General Election is bringing in lots of new people and that’s an exciting development.
