Newton Abbot Conservative Association -  News update


Party Leadership

Last week the Prime Minister announced her intention to resign as Leader of the Conservative & Unionist Party on Friday 7 June. The Prime Minister has served the Party and the nation dutifully for many years, spending time as an activist, a long-serving minister and our second female Prime Minister.

The announcement of her resignation means that a leadership election will begin on the 7th June, and it is then that the Party will start the process to elect a new leader and Prime Minister. The timetable for this is determined by the Executive of the 1922 in consultation with the Party Board, and more details, including on hustings, will be confirmed in the coming weeks.


I would like to reiterate the importance of ensuring your membership subscriptions are up to date and current, We will be checking our office records are up to date and correct,  but as always there is the chance of human error and we will be working with members who raise any membership queries to resolve them as quickly as possible.

I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this stressful period.

We have a duty to our members to make sure their subscriptions are correctly recorded; we do not want members to miss out on their opportunity to select the next Party Leader.

We will work to solve any membership issues via our Agent, Andrew Barrand, who can be contacted in the first instance by e-mail at or 07703 714746

As Andrew does not work for us full time do please contact by email if you can, he will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.

We appreciate all the hard work carried out in the past month over both Local and European elections. We are grateful for all of the effort and hard work that you have and continue to put in and we share your disappointment that we didn't have better results. 

With best wishes
