The Conservatives in West Dorset work hard to represent the interests of people who live here. We are always looking for people to support the message. You can help in many ways. Some of these are: Support social and fundraising events
You can find out what events are taking place by checking with your local Conservative branch. These events are great opportunities to meet up with friends and talk about all the current activities around the area.
Help us with leafleting
We regularly deliver leaflets and newsletters by hand to electors in all areas. We need help in ensuring that our message is sent around quickly and efficiently. If you could help us by delivering your road, or the area around where you live, that would help us enormously. Get in touch if you can help. It’s fun and keeps (or gets) you fit!
Become a member
Membership of the Party is extremely important. Members help financially to support the professional help we need in West Dorset. We have a full time Agent and assistant. The Conservative Party has more members than Labour & Liberal Democrats put together, and so there is no better time to get involved. You can become a member for as little as £25 (£3 if under 22). You can download and print the attached membership form at the bottom of this page.
Fundraising is a lot of what a political association is about. Without funds we cannot run an office employ an agent and run elections. If you don’t want to join but would like to support us with a donation, do contact us or send a cheque!
We canvass voters in 2 ways – by phone and on the doorstep. At different times through the year we try to contact as many people as possible to hear their views and what matters to them. This is always fun and very interesting and not at all daunting. If you like talking to people and wish to help us with this important work, please contact us. We do train our canvassers, so that you can relax and talk with a smile in your voice!
