About Us

The Conservative Party in Mid Dorset attracts members and volunteers from across the County of Dorset.  There are regular Conservative Policy Forum meetings, where members and guests can discuss policy issues.  We also hold a number of social and political events in what is a packed social calendar!  We are a broad church, and we encourage open debate and accept differences of opinion.

What unites the Party are the core Conservative principles which provide our foundation.

Freedom
Conservatives believe in less interference from the State - freedom for individuals, families, voluntary groups and businesses.

Enterprise
Conservative want to keep taxes low and set businesses free from red tape to help Britain compete in the global economy.

Responsibility
Conservatives stand for the rule of law and support for all members of our society. We recognise our duty to protect the environment for future generations.

Nation
Conservatives want to safeguard the Union of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, maintain strong defence and uphold our right to national self-government. We want to be in Europe but not run by Europe.
