The West Suffolk constituency was created in 1995 following a Parliamentary Boundary Review and takes in much of the area covered by the former Bury St Edmunds division, Forest Heath division together with areas that were previously part of the South Suffolk constituency.
We are a rural area of considerable diversity. The largest town is Haverhill, which is expanding and prospering, with its close connections to the new technology industries around Cambridge. Second largest is Newmarket, famous as the world headquarters of horseracing. There are two major US Airforce bases - RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath.
The West Suffolk Conservatives are a vibrant association with an active membership. The Association exists in order to:
- Achieve the election of a Conservative MP for West Suffolk;
- Ensure that Conservative candidates are elected at Local Council elections;
- Spread the Conservative message throughout West Suffolk and encourage support for Conservative policies and beliefs;
- Raise money to fund this work.
