MPs join Conservative association members for autumn drinks in the garden
THE CHALFONT St Giles Conservative branch welcomed MPs from across England to their autumn drinks party on Sunday.
The bash was held in the garden of the home of Bucks county councillor Tim Butcher and his partner, Emma Pidding CBE, who was recently appointed to the House of Lords.
A combination of Conservative party members and villagers turned up to enjoy the event.
The guest of honour was the MP for Chesham and Amersham, Cheryl Gillan, and the event was also attended by Anne Marie Morris, MP for Newton Abbot in Devon, and James Wharton, MP for Stockton South in County Durham and the minister for the Northern Powerhouse.
Mr Butcher said: “The afternoon was a great success.
“It is always a pleasure to welcome Cheryl and her husband, Jack, to our branch events, and it was an added bonus to have the company of Anne Marie and James.
“Both are longstanding friends of the Chesham and Amersham Conservative Association.”
