Patrons' Club

The Patrons’ Club is group within the Epping Forest Conservative Association that has two events a year to provide like-minded people in this area a chance to meet and network, and to raise much needed funds at the same time.

We endeavour to have a senior member of the Conservative Party attend as a guest speaker, and our events provide an excellent opportunity to meet and talk with them. Eleanor Laing also attends and a number of other County, District and Parish Councillorsare in the Club so providing another excellent chance to meet and chat with them as well.

For an application form or more information on the Patrons' Club, please contact Thatcher House.
