Conservatives Abroad Jávea were delighted to welcome Heather Harper for an informal visit to Spain. Gaile Griffin Peers, Chairman of the Javea Branch, said how useful the visit was. ‘It reinforces the links between the Party and the grass root voters in this area and it is part of the re-invigoration of the Branch that we started last year’. Heather met with members at two events and spent time explaining how Conservatives Abroad was moving forward globally and how Social integration between regions, branches and members was the lynchpin on which the future could be built

Conservatives Abroad in Hong Kong held a joint event with the St George’s Society and Lib Dems Abroad, a Dinner Debate on the subject of Welfare.
They were fortunate to have join them from the Conservative side Mark Hoban MP, the Minister for Employment, who telephoned in from London to kick the evening off.
Mark’s short speech was followed by a Q&A session which helped to spark a fiery debate that lasted well into the night. The evening was a great success (apart from a small technical issue with the phone).
