There are countless ways you can help the High Peak Conservative Association, some of which are outlined below. If you wish to get more involved in supporting your local Conservative team, e-mail us for more information.
We have a regular programme of leaflet delivery to all homes in the constituency. You could simply volunteer to deliver your road or further afield, either on a regular basis or just during election campaigns. You can deliver as many or as few as you wish. We will not press you to do more than you are able to. Our aim is to have a large number of volunteers, each delivering a small number of leaflets. You don't have to be a member to help deliver leaflets, your local Conservatives are grateful for any help you can give.
Conservative Policy Forum
The CPF (Conservative Policy Forum) enables members of the Conservative Party to engage in political debate on the big issues of the day and to help influence the policy of the Party. High Peak Conservatives have regular meetings to discuss the latest briefs, typically one to three meetings per quarter. Our opinions are then summarised in a report which is sent to Conservative Central Office for consideration. If you would like to come along or get involved, please e-mail us.
As a member of the local Conservative Party you will be notified of the many social functions held throughout the year. These include lunches, dinners, trips and tours, quizzes, BBQs and much more. A list of upcoming Social Events can be found here.
