I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me the honour of being Chairman of Stafford Constituency Conservative Association for the last few years and for the wonderful support shown by members throughout. I have endeavoured to be worthy of that honour.
I am delighted to be handing over the reins to Duncan Sandbrook - in fact it gave me great pleasure to nominate Duncan and I am very pleased that he was duly elected at the AGM on Friday. I sincerely hope that members will give Duncan the support which has always been shown to me. I am confident the Association will go from strength to strength.
I am also extremely delighted that Jeremy Lefroy agreed to allow me to nominate him as President to follow our very dear friend Amyas Stafford Northcote who sadly lost his battle with cancer last year - Amyas was a gentle man; a true gentleman and a very special person - and of course a wonderful supporter of the Conservative Party and especially Stafford Association. RIP Amyas, God Bless. I can think of no more suitable person to follow Amyas than Jeremy.
I feel sure members will agree the future of Stafford Conservative Association is in very good hands
The above will be ably supported by -
Cllr. Ann Edgeller who was re-elected as Deputy Chair Membership/Finance: Cllr. Ray Sutherland as Deputy Chair Political and the following people as officers -
Cllr. Jonathan Price; Cllr. Ray Barron; Jean Tabernor; Aidan Tyrrell; Maria Redfern and Ann Foster
Thank you once again
