The Dewsbury Association were delighted when a cohort of Yorkshire CFers attended their annual Association Dinner. The Dinner took place at Dewsbury and District Golf Club which proved a beautiful setting for a lovely evening.
The CFers were there to support Dewsbury MP Simon Reevell, a loyal supporter of CF, who has just recently deservedly been confirmed to stand for re-election as candidate for Dewsbury in 2015.
A delicious 3 course meal with plenty of wine flowing was followed by speeches by Dewsbury Association Chairman Alan Burton, MP Simon Reevell, Honorary President of the Mirfield Conservatives Keith Sibbald and the special guest Sir Roger Gale, MP for Thanet who spoke a little about his experiences serving in Parliament with Lady Thatcher. He also congratulated CF for the work that they do and wished them luck for the future.
Speeches were followed by an auction and a raffle at which some CFers were lucky enough to win a prize before musical entertainment rounded off the evening.
The evening was a massive success with lots of money raised for the Association to go into the fighting fund for Simon’s re-election battle and the local election candidates.
CFers have been asked to keep the 13th July free in their diary to come and support the next big Dewsbury Event which will be a Race Night, more details will follow in due course.
