The Association covers all six council wards (Aldridge Central and South, Aldridge North and Walsall Wood, Brownhills, Pelsall, Rushall and Shelfield, Streetly). There is an active Conservative branch in each of the wards and seventeen out of the eighteen councillors that represent these wards are Conservative. Besides the ward branches we have a ladies committee, and for members under thirty there is a growing Conservative Future branch. There is also an Aldridge Brownhills branch of the Conservative Party Forum which meets every month to discuss National issues. The conclusions of this meeting are then sent to Conservative headquarters in London who pass on constituent views to the relevant ministers.

Since the 2010 General Election these are just some of the Conservative Government’s achievements:

  • The Deficit has been cut by a quarter
  • 1 million new jobs have been created in the private sector
  • 250,000 new small businesses have been created
  • A record number of apprenticeships have started – half a million in the last year alone
  • Tax has been cut by £600 for 24 million people and 2.2 million people have been taken out of tax altogether
  • Council Tax has been frozen for 3 years in a row
  • Energy companies are being forced to put customers on the lowest tariff
  • Benefits are being capped – so no out-of-work household can claim more than the average workingfamily earns
  • Net immigration has been cut by a third
  • A cut in the EU budget and a treaty vetoed because it wasn’t in Britain’s national interest
  • Crime is down by 10 per cent
  • Over 6,000 more doctors have been employed in the NHS – and there are 6,000 fewer managers
