Cumbria’s Young Conservatives have been pounding the pavement in Grange-over-Sands, as part of the final week of the crucial by-election for the South Lakes council seat.
The Chairman, Kate Walker, executive members Gabi Harrison and Sam Bown, and Cumbria Young Conservative member, Luke Gudgeon, spent the day with Conservative County Councillor, William Wearing, and other activists, to get the final batches of pledge letters through voters’ doors ahead of the election this Thursday.
It was the first campaigning day the Cumbria Young Conservatives have been involved in since their conception, and although the hot weather made for a hard day’s work, they were able to stop and have a nice pub lunch as a respite.
Kate Walker stated “It was a great day of campaigning, and we are certain that we have contributed positively to this campaign.
“We were told time and again, how great it was to see young people getting involved with the party, as it will be our generation who forms the next cohorts of candidates for political office.
“I strongly encourage all of our Cumbria Young Conservative members to join us at our next campaign day, as a way of meeting other likeminded young people, and to also start their own personal career in politics.”
An announcement will be made soon as to the next event organised by the Cumbria Young Conservatives, so look out for more details.
