Speaking to residents on the Coldharbour

Matt Hartley and Priti Patel visit

I’m incredibly grateful for the hundreds of messages of support I’ve had since my selection as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Eltham on Tuesday night.  The campaign is well under way and my team and I are out knocking on as many doors as we can, talking about the high stakes in this election – nationally and locally.

I was pleased to welcome Secretary of State for International Development Priti Patel to the Coldharbour, in my council ward, on Friday afternoon, to talk to residents about the choice they face on June 8th.  My ward colleagues Cllr John Hills and Mandy Brinkhurst also joined us to take about some of the issues we’ve been tackling on the estate as local councillors.

There’s a packed weekend of campaigning ahead – in the meantime, the Mercury has covered the start of the campaign – you can read their article here – and like my Facebook page here.

It’s been 6 busy days since I was selected as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Greenwich & Woolwich, and I’ve been working hard to get my campaign up and running and off to a flying start.

The News ShopperMercury (page 10) and Greenwich.co.uk have all reported the news (but don’t expect to see it in Greenwich Time anytime soon…), and I’ve also been deluged by very kind messages of support – including many from some very unexpected places! Continue reading The campaigning begins!

Good news for our Mend The Mound campaign, and on the Porcupine

I’ve just noticed that it has been 2 months since I last blogged – this year really is galloping past.  My absence has been in large part down to two local campaigns I’ve been involved that have culminated at the same time.  Fortunately, in success!
