The European and County Council elections are upon us. Heyhouses residents will be eligible to vote on Thursday at the Polling Stations as listed on your Polling Card. This will be either St Thomas' School or Hope Street Park. There are a total of 8 Conservative European Parliamentary Candidates to vote for and Councillor Fabian Craig-Wilson is the Conservative candidates for St Annes South.
After 28 years of labour control at County Hall Fylde needs a change which will bring about a change of funding priorities from the East of Lancashire back to the Fylde region.
The Conservatives are the only party that is capable of taking control, requiring just a handful of seats to take over. The Lib Dems are miles behind and would require almost 40 seats to come close - so remember not only to vote but to support the Conservative Party when voting as this is the only real way to guarantee a change for Lancashire. It's time for change - please remember to vote!
Keeping Residents In Touch
The role of District Councillor has changed dramatically since the year 2000. Government policy and public awareness has meant that Councillors need to be more accountable than ever before to their electorate. Technology has also moved on and in Heyhouses your Conservative Councillors are at the forefront of adopting e-mail alerts, Blogs and Newsletters such as the Heyhouses Harrier to keep you up to date. Our monthly mobile Ward surgeries are also a vital face to face opportunity for residents to keep in touch with us. Finally the Heyhouses Branch committee, made up of volunteers, plays a vital supporting role in campaigning and fund raising. If you would like to play a more active role in your area and would like to become part of the team, then please get in touch. We hope you enjoy the Blog.
