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.

Sunny Shields Weekend

We had a very successful coffee morning at St Peter's Church this morning. As well as support from our stalwarts we had several new faces there, as a result of the invitations we'd delivered in the Harton area of the town. We raised around £300, it's believed at this stage, from donations towards the refreshments and the raffle, which all goes towards the campaign, but of course the gathering was more about meeting people and talking. This was the first of several coffee mornings we'll be hosting in different areas of South Shields, so keep an eye out for an invitation coming through your door soon.

I'm off to see the amateur dramatics production of Rent tonight at the Customs House. Hope the weather keeps up so we have enjoy the sunny Green Room beforehand.
