BY-ELECTION - FOGGY FURZE WARD

08/08/2022

As many will know, we have a by-election in Foggy Furze Ward and our candidate who was unanimously elected by Executive Members at the selection meeting last week.

Chairman of Hartlepool Conservative Association Cllr Mike Young was keen to show support for Pam Shurmers' campaign.

"When it comes to a can-do attitude and finding positive ways forward, Pam is a great person to engage with. It has been fantastic to have Pam involved with the party and I have no doubt in my mind that this selection is the best possible result for the upcoming by-election."

"We urge all Conservative voters to send postal votes and attend polling stations on September 8th to vote for Pam Shurmer."

Pam was supported by our MP - Jill Mortimer and National Party Chairman Andrew Stephenson. 


GOOD LUCK PAM!

THE PASSING OF OUR BELOVED MAYOR, CLLR BRENDA LOYNES

February 24, 2022

On 8 February 2022, Brenda sadly lost her battle with Cancer and the town lost the most compassionate, caring and strong soul.

At her funeral on 23 February 2022, a huge amount of people came to pay their respects to Brenda, our rock.

At the funeral, Denise McGuckin Managing Director for Hartlepool Borough Council spoke of Brenda being "Such a very lovely lady" and reminiscing about the time that Brenda was very forthright in an employment tribunal she was giving evidence at.

Ray Martin-Wells - Hartlepool Conservative Association President spoke of Brenda as a "Formidable force" and someone who was "almost an opponent". But also someone who had a "heart of gold and loved her family and friends dearly".

We will miss you Brenda. Love from us all.

ONE TO WATCH: HARTLEPOOL CONSERVATIVES

September 25, 2021

We were excited to hear last year that Hartlepool Borough Council were replacing and repairing the play equipment at Ward Jackson Park.
Many families visit the park across the year and the standard of equipment is something that is a constant cause of concern Children can benefit from brand new play equipment in a safe
place and as a town we have a park that brings people a good dose of happiness.

Cllr Mike Young, Ward Councillor for Rural West said, "A young resident called Charlie called my from his fathers mobile phone before Covid-19 arrived and expressed his disappointment at the damaged equipment at Ward Jackson Park. I spoke with the leader of the Council and senior Council officers who were already working on a plan for the play area. As a team we all played our part and I received a letter from Charlie, thanking everyone for their help to make the park the best."
