Crowborough Branch

A/Branch Chairman:  Cllr Sylvia Tidy

Welcome to the Crowborough Branch page.

The Crowborough Branch is one of the most active in the constituency: we have a core group of members and councillors who actively promote Conservatism across the town, and lend support in other locations when required.

We hold monthly Councillor Surgeries and are present at key events in the town such as the Summer Fair, Fun Day and Christmas Cracker.

Right now couldn't be a better time to get involved in Crowborough. We have lots of ideas, we want to create a buzz and there's sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.

If you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact Syliva.
