The Louth and Horncastle Conservative Association is made up from like-minded people whose aim is to build a better constituency by promoting Conservative values.
The Louth and Horncastle Conservative Association is open to anybody who supports the Conservative cause. The Association is one of over 600 Conservative Associations which are part of the national Conservative Party. The Louth and Horncastle Conservative Association works within the constitution of the Conservative Party but – as with all local associations – it is run and paid for by local people.
The Louth and Horncastle Conservative Association is run by an Executive Council which includes representatives from the Louth and Horncastle wards, East Lindsey District Council wards and Lincolnshire County Council divisions which make up the Louth and Horncastle constituency. These may include Conservative councillors who represent Louth and Horncastle wards together with other representatives nominated by local ward Conservative branches.
The Chairman, Deputy Chairman Membership, Deputy Chairman Political, Treasurer and up to three other officers of the Association are elected to the Management Team at the Annual General Meeting which is held in March of each year. All paid up members are entitled to attend the AGM and vote. The officers are responsible for the day to day running of the Association and report directly to the Executive Council, which meets quarterly. The Executive Council, with the advice from the officers, decides the Association’s policy.
The Association exists to promote the Conservative cause throughout the Louth and Horncastle constituency and to work for the election of Conservative Party candidates at National, European and local level. We do not receive funding from the national party and the money we spend is raised by members and supporters through membership subscriptions and fundraising events. We pay a quota, based on membership numbers, to the Conservative Party to help the Party with national campaigns and the maintenance of the national Conservative Campaigning Headquarters (CCHQ)
The money we raise locally enables us to run the office in Eastgate Louth which includes the costs of rent, utilities, stationary, IT and printing, and also to fund literature and produce election leaflets.
Many of our fundraising events are organised at ward level by our Conservative branches. These, like our Association events, are both social and political. All members are invited to attend.
How can you help?
All of our members pay a subscription as they want to support the Conservative Party financially, however, we always want members (old and new) to get more involved in helping. As you will see from our events and news pages there are plenty of ways to get involved and enjoy your membership!
- We campaign on local and national issues
- Delivering election leaflets
- Doorstep canvassing
- Telephone canvassing
