About us

Southend West Conservative Association represents the Conservative Party in the Parliamentary constituency of the same name.  The Association is dedicated to providing support for our MP Sir David Amess and local councillors and seeks to:

  • Promote the Conservative cause within the constituency

  • Ensure the election and return of a Conservative Member of Parliament, Conservative Members of the European Parliament and Conservative Councillors in Southend Borough Council.

  • Raising funds for the Conservative Party and the Association

  • Organise local political and social activities.

  • Select and train potential Local council candidates

  • Select or reselect the Constituency MP

Southend West Conservative Association is proud of its record of service both to the local community and the nation. Although we have been consistently successful over many years we are never the less fully aware that our members do not have a divine right to control Southend-on-Sea Borough Council or to have a Conservative Member of Parliament. This is an honour on loan to us by the people of the constituency and to be deserving of that trust we must continue to work extremely hard on their behalf.

Southend West is a totally urban constituency. The success it has achieved through the years at parliamentary and local authority level has been achieved by Conservative representatives at both levels (including our friends from Southend East) placing a strong emphasis on social and regeneration issues. Although the Conservatives no longer have overall control of the Administration, we will continue to do all we can to ensure correct policies and procedures are adhered to, and fight to ensure Southend is the best place to live!

I hope you are keeping safe and well in these troubled times. As you will have read from my recent message, sadly we have had to postpone all SWCA activi- ties and events for the foreseeable future until such time as the virus threat passes and it is safe for us to get back together.
