The North Wales and Border Federation of Conservative Clubs held their meeting on Saturday, 12th September, at the Beaconsfield Conservative Club in Shrewsbury for the first time ever and Club Chairman, John Pritchard said he was delighted to welcome everyone.
The Federation Chairman, David Thomas, read a letter he had received from Jonathan Evans, the President of the Wales’ Conservative Clubs, to say a big thank you for the financial contribution they had made to the Welsh Conservative Party for the General Election.
Lyndon Jones, the Secretary of the Wales’ Conservative Clubs Council said that he had written to Philip Smith on behalf of the Council to congratulate him on his nomination as a Conservative Life Peer in the Dissolution Honours. He said Philip will do a fantastic job and will be a great ambassador for the Conservative Clubs and the Party in the House of Lords and is one of those people who will use this great opportunity to make a real difference.
He went on to say that the good news for the Association of Conservative Clubs was that it would be business as usual for Philip, in his role as Chief Executive.
Lyndon Jones, who had recently been selected to fight the target seat of Gower in the Welsh Assembly Elections next year, thanked everyone for their continued support for the Conservative Party and talked about the Welsh Assembly Elections, which would be held in May next year. He also mentioned the election of the new Labour Leader and warned that we should not be complacent, but now needed to work even harder to get our message across.
In conclusion, the Chairman, David Thomas, reminded people about the Wales Conservative Clubs’ Conference and Suppliers Forum, which was going to be held on Saturday, 31st October, 2015, at the New House Country Hotel, Thornhill Road, Cardiff. He said he hoped for a big attendance from North Wales and the Borders.
