Over three hundred older people participated in the Community Tea event, supported by over forty different organisations. The event was held in the Council’s Great Hall and coordinated by the Kensington and Chelsea Forum for Older Residents.
When Theresa May stood on the steps of Downing Street and spoke directly to the people of Britain she showed that she understood the complexity of people’s lives, and we all gave a collective sigh of relief across the Country that the Head Girl was in charge and we were in capable hands.
Parliament continued with several tight votes, and then suddenly an election was called – surprising everyone. As we trooped through the voting lobbies for the last time we were assured that the manifesto would be brief, it would cover our high level ambitions and vision, but not dwell on detail. Theresa has set our her Government’s plan for Britain at the Conservative Spring forum, so we knew the sense of direction.
Local Resident’s Survey Results – So Far
Thank you to those who completed my local resident’s survey in Kensington.
To summarise the results, I have put them in chart form here, but I shall be taking up these topics with our local councillors, where relevant, and if you re-select me as your candidate I will ensure that these form the basis of my “Campaigns for Kensington”.
If you haven’t completed my survey yet, there’s still time to do so by clicking here.
I’d also be grateful if you could share it with your friends and family who live locally.
I want to make sure I have listened to your priorities and the more local responses I receive the better.

A draft deal that delivers on the referendum and will see us take back control of our money, laws and borders.
It will end freedom of movement while protecting jobs, security and our precious Union.
And it means no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland. Guaranteed in a way which respects the constitutional and economic integrity of the UK.

Why I can win back Kensington
Victoria Borwick sets out why she’s the right choice to be the Tory’s Kensington candidate at the next general election.
Let me take this on the chin. I lost Kensington in the 2017 general election, but I believe I am the right person to win it back for the Conservatives.
Why? Because I know the reasons that we lost the seat and I know that next time we can put Labour’s Emma Dent Coad to flight.
