Trafford Conservatives select local resident as candidate for the upcoming Bucklow St. Martins Ward by-election.

LOCAL Conservatives have selected active local resident Sarah Marland to be their candidate in the upcoming Bucklow St. Martins Ward by-election.

Sarah Marland, a local resident of Partington, who was born in Urmston and educated in Flixton has been selected to lead the fight against Labour in the upcoming Bucklow St. Martins Ward by-election.

Speaking about her candidacy Sarah said:

“My parents and grandparents all grew up in Partington and the majority of my extended family still live here. As a child, I was brought up in Urmston but when it came to settling down and buying my own house, I chose to buy in Partington.

I am from a working class background and after securing my A Levels, went straight into the world of work. I am proud to say I have gained a lot of experience in the last few years, both in a professional and personal regard. Since moving to Partington, I have wanted to become more involved in the local community and I plan to work hard to improve our area as the Conservative Party Candidate for the upcoming by-election.”

Local Conservatives support Urmston in Bloom campaign.

ONE more of Trafford’s busy and vibrant towns have joined the ‘in bloom’ campaign, and this time it’s in the north of the borough. It’s in Urmston! 

On a bright sunday morning around twelve volunteers headed out into Urmston to make a start on tidying the planters and clearing weeds from the edge of roads and pavements. Among the twelve were Stretford and Urmston Conservative Association’s own; Christine and Geoff Turner.

Alongside the other volunteers Christine and Geoff fought back weeds and rejuvenated planters, preparing for the next stage of the in bloom campaign, helping to establish Urmston as a tidy, floral and pretty town.

However, the work is not yet finished, The Urmston in Bloom campaign is ongoing and volunteers to assist are always needed!

We’d like to thank David Mackereth of the Urmston Partnership for organising the inaugural working party of the Urmston in Bloom campaign, and look forward to seeing Urmston in Bloom!

The next working party is being held in conjunction with the Urmston Wombles, meeting outside Cheeky Churubs on Higher Road on Sunday the 13th of August at 10.30am.
