Welcome to the Bury St Edmunds branch of the Conservative Women's Organisation.
Our aim is to encourage more women to vote and to actively participate in politics. We hold two or three events per year including a summer drinks with the opportunity to meet our local MP and other senior local political figures.
Membership of CWO offers many benefits. Here are just a few:
CWO National & Local Forums – an opportunity for women to discuss and debate direct with MPs and Ministers, particular issues affecting them
Development Training Programmes – to help individuals with their personal and political development and to actively encourage more women to stand for public office as local Councillors, School Governors and JPs. It can also be a useful training tool for those of us who have had a break from the workplace raising a family and wish to return to work.
Access to our exciting Regional Conference and numerous social events annually
The CWO is the oldest women's political organisation in the world with an enviable heritage - First Female MP (Lady Astor) and Britain's First Female Prime Minister (Baroness Margaret Thatcher).
I look forward to welcoming you soon to one of our events. Please contact me directly for more info.
