This is a Special General Meeting of the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Conservatives to select the Conservative candidate for the Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections (taking place on Thursday 7th May 2020).
Details are being sent out directly to all qualifying members (those who have been a member for three or more months prior to the meeting, i.e. on or before 21st June 2019).
We are proposing that Isle of Wight members who wish to attend the meeting catch the 3:15pm Red Jet from Cowes to Southampton, and we will then provide a minibus or coach (depending on demand) for the 30 minute journey to the meeting venue. With the meeting finishing at approximately 7pm, we would then return to Southampton in time for the 7:45pm Red Jet back to Cowes.
Members would be asked to pay for their Red Jet travel (although we would seek to negotiate a discount based on numbers travelling), however the minibus / coach return journey from Southampton to Winchester would be funded by the IWCA.
So that we can ascertain the likely numbers (and therefore whether we need to book a minibus or coach for the mainland part of the journey), we are asking any member who is interested in attending (and travelling with us via Cowes) to register by clicking on the 'attend this free event' button below. This pre-registration will close on 8th September. We will then arrange transport to match the numbers.
(Alternatively, members are welcome to make their own way to the meeting in Winchester. If so, they should register directly with the organisers (using the information provided to them via email or post).)
