CWF Activists take over Trafford!

Today in numbers: 100+ activists, 2 hours =12,000 letters delivered. On a sunny Sunday in Manchester and the first day of Conservative Party Conference 2015, a gang of socialist Labour protesters took to central Manchester in an attempt to bring a halt to Conference. They littered the streets, threw eggs at young unsuspecting Tory delegates and generally filled the atmosphere with their particular brand of hatred. What did we do? We scooped up over 100 activists and took to the streets of Trafford to tell people 10 reasons why the borough should stay blue - making sure people on low incomes have more money in their pocket instead of crushing them with higher taxes. Positive cheerful campaigning led by local MP, Graham Brady and Council Leader Sean Anstee. Continue reading

CWF Action Day at Party Conference 2015!


Join Conservative Way Forward at Conference this year on our action-packed Campaign Bus! 

At CWF we don't just talk about campaigning: we get out there and do it. That's why a huge team of us will be boarding the CWF campaign bus at 2pm on Sunday 4th October, with leading figures from the Conservative movement led by Graham Brady MP, Liam Fox MP, and others. 

We are headed to Trafford - the only Conservative-held council in the Manchester region and one that is extremely marginal. We need to hold it next year, to ensure that Corbyn's Labour Party don't start to gain traction. 

To secure the long-term economic recovery that Britain needs, it's critical that we keep up the momentum now - especially in places like Trafford that need our help. 

Sign up below to register your seat for the bus. We only have 75 spots aboard the double-decker and it will be first-come-first-serve: so please only book a seat if you can really join us on the day.  

Here's the plan for Sunday 4th October: 

2pm: Assemble outside the secure zone and board the CWF campaign bus. Precise location TBC. 

5pm: We'll be back at the secure zone by 5pm, safe in the knowledge we've done our bit to help the Trafford Conservatives, Graham Brady MP, and our other colleagues in the North West. 

RSVP to say you'll join us. 

PS - Anyone who joins us on the CWF Campaign Bus will gain FREE ENTRY to our infamous CWF midnight reception that evening! (Tickets for non-members are £30).
