CF @ Conference: Come help make a difference for Bournemouth's young people

Message from Mark Clarke, CF Chairman

When I stood for election I promised that Social Action programmes would be a major part of CF's activities. CF already has a proud record of helping already in Social Action programmes. We were there helping in the Spring Forum in Manchester at the activities there to improve the community. Local CF branches are also getting involved. For example, Wirral West CF go out with Esther McVey a couple of times a year and clean up the Wirral beaches. Getting more involved in this area has broad support within CF. We will be making more announcements in the next few days on this.

So I am personally delighted to announce that the first event organised by the incoming NME team is assisting with Tobias Ellwood's project to convert a local disused church to a useful community centre. This will help young people in the area, so it is absolutely right that CF are central to the efforts. We will be taking a big group down on the Monday afternoon to assist with all the activities. Going down en masse and mucking in as a group means we can all get to know each other and have fun as a one CF team. Transport has been arranged. Justine Greening MP and Tobias Ellwood MP, among others, will be there lending a hand at the same time. We have hundreds of CF delegates at conference. I know that many of you will want to come and show your support, make a difference to the community and have a laugh in the process.

James Cutts (email) is the CF lead for this project and I would be grateful if you could contact him to let him know if you can attend or not and we will share all the details. We do need to keep track of numbers.
