Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

Harlow Branch



I am very pleased to report that the Harlow branch is well on it's way to finding more new members. We had a campaign day in Harlow yesterday for new members and an evening social event which was well attended.
We hope very much now that the branch will be active in organising its own events and to assist the PPC Robert Halfon in becoming elected at the next General Election.
Thank you to the support we have had from London and to James Dinsdale (also Happy Birthday to James) and also thank you to Chairman, Graham Smith. Good luck Graham in your new ventures.
