Marginal seats initiative gets underway

The new Deputy Chairman of CF will be announced tomorrow. As expected, it will be Claire Palmer (having been unanimously elected for the post by the rest of the Exec). Her main responsiblity will be the building of and enhancement of CF branches in marginal seats - Mark Clarke's main manifesto pledge.

I understand that the first constituencies to be focused on will be: 

Finchley and Golders Green
Portsmouth North
Portsmouth South

Half of all Exec time will be going into this initiative, which started with yesterday's training of Area Chairmen. There will be a second wave of ten later on in the year. In the meantime small existing branches in Wirral West, Loughborough and Torbay will be expanded.
