Patrons

Are you passionate about the future direction of Conservative policies?

Would you like to be able to express your views to Conservative leaders at Cabinet level?

Would you like to have regular opportunities to meet and talk individually to senior members of the Conservative Party?

Please consider becoming a Patron of the North Devon Conservative Association.

One of our recent initiatives has been to set up a group of Patrons as part of our mission to re-energise the Party locally in order to elect Peter Heaton-Jones as our Conservative Member of Parliament in May 2015.

Having secured victory in 2015 it is vital that we look forward to 2020 without forgetting about important local elections in 2017 and 2019. The Patrons group were vital during the 2015 campaign and we are looking to expand and develop in the coming years.

We have already established a core of 40 Patrons and we expect to build this to around 60. By its very nature this will always be a relatively small group, and we would be delighted to hear from you if you would be interested in joining us.

There will not be formal meetings of the members of the Patrons’ Group, but we shall get together at two social events each year - a drinks party in the summer and a dinner in the winter, to each of which we will invite a senior Party figure as guest speaker.  Even in the heat of the politics these evenings will be marked by good quality eating and drinking in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere!

This is all about supporting Peter’s energetic efforts with vigour and enthusiasm - and money. The secret campaigning is hard work and commitment to (and by) the local party organisation, but none of that can bear fruit unless we have the financial support to underpin what will be an expensive couple of years.  Being a Patron will also give you a chance to discuss and air your views on matters of Government policy which Peter can then relay to those at CCHQ.

We are asking each Patron to be kind enough to pay an annual subscription of £200 (or £300 for a couple). Please feel no embarrassment at treating this as a minimum!
