CPF stands alongside the social calendar as one of the main benefits of being a party member - most Tories love to talk politics. Our meetings are informal, with an optional meal beforehand and a limit on numbers to allow proper discussion. Recent topics have included Immigration, Europe, Schools and Higher Education. Most of the meetings discuss briefings produced by CCHQ, but we don't let that get in the way of saying what we really think! It's not unusual for people's opinions to change after a CPF, or for some new insight to be provided by a member with an area of expertise.
There are currently active groups in Wadhurst and Mayfield, and now in Crowborough - members and supporters from across the constituency are welcome to attend. The Association is keen to see other groups established, especially in the south including Hailsham, Uckfield and surrounding area. If you're interested in setting up or attending a CPF group please contact the Office.
