I am delighted with the outcome of the General Election and that the Conservatives have a majority to move on with Brexit and the domestic agenda. I am very happy that so many friends, colleagues and women have been elected and had the opportunity to stand for the Conservatives which I consider an absolute privilege.
As the candidate in Arfon, North Wales I worked hard with the local association and activists to get the best possible result for the area. Thank you to everyone who supported me, knocked on doors and handed out leaflets, attended hustings to support me and in one instance stood in for me when I had a family crisis. Knowing I had your full support made all the difference to team morale during our short election campaign. We may have been personally disappointed in Arfon but we were united in our relief and joy at the national result.
As the CWO London Chairman and CWO Deputy Chairman National, and in our 100th year, I was delighted to support women through to become candidates and those women who were selected in London each received £250 towards their fighting fund. All the hard work this year in fundraising, in developing candidates through speaking events, in recognising women and advising women through their journey’s has reached a wonderful conclusion with the election of women MPs.
I have had a great 100th year! Now with Christmas approaching – I will be attending Holy Trinity Church to hear my children singing in the choir and then onto Mother Goose ….. Oh no you aren’t! …. Oh yes I am! Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
