Who are we?
Keele Young Conservatives (KYC) is a nationally affiliated Young Conservatives society that has been campaigning for conservative values and candidates in Keele and the wider area of Newcastle-Under-Lyme. We have members who have never campaigned, to members who regularly help out canvassing! We have attended events with some of the biggest political figures in the country including David Cameron, Nicky Morgan and Boris Johnson. Most recently we attended the Northern Research Group conference and an event with Tom Tougendhat.
In the lead up to the May 2015 General Elections many of our members campaigned with the local Newcastle-under-Lyme Conservative Candidate Tony Cox. Our members have also worked for the main Conservative Party 2015 campaign group, helping to organise campaign events for the likes of David Cameron, George Osborne, Nicky Morgan and Alec Shelbrooke as well as campaigning on the 2015 Conservative Battle Bus.
We campaigned with our local MP's in 2019 where Aaron Bell who won Newcastle-under-Lyme where he overtured a Labour majority into a conservative majority of over 7,000! and in Stoke North where Jonathan Gullis overtured a 2,000 Labour majority in to a Conservative majority of over 6,000!
In the 2022 local election for Newcastle-under-lyme Borough Council, three of our members had the opporunity to stand for election where with the local party we broke the national trend and won the council for the frist time in decades with a six seat majority.
KYC have been to Conservative Party Conferences in Manchester in previous years and we hope to do so again in the future. KYC is a great place to get involved in politics and with events in the pipeline. KYC is a society you should consider signing up to!
We look forward to meeting you!
