Join Andrew George at Pengersick Castle for a Cream Tea

Posted on: 13th April 2022

Join Andrew George at Pengersick Castle for a Cream Tea, as part of our fundraising and volunteer recruitment to get Andrew George elected as our MP when the General Election comes, whenever it is. I appeal to friends who might well be paid up members or committed supporters of the Labour or Green party to think very hard about whether, next time, voting with your principles and seeing a conservative re-elected here, is what you really, really want? Dreams and principles are all very laudable but the St Ives constituency Parliamentary seat is Conservative or Liberal Democrat, it has never been anything else. See recent General Election results below.

Our host is opening up this amazing venue for this event

So, if you want to come along to start our journey of getting Andrew George back as our local MP, book yourself a place through Eventbrite Tickets so we can manage numbers. It is free to book BUT please bring your cash, cheque book, (I’ll have the constituency’s bank details) ideas for fundraising and what you are willing to do to help the election campaign.
