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.
