The first ever elections for Police and Crime Commissioners will be taking place on 15 November. The Conservatives are looking for very high calibre candidates for what will be high profile and public roles. Are you interested in being the candidate for Surrey?

On February 27 a packed St Peter’s Church bade farewell to Derek Denyer, a Hersham South councillor for 20 years and a most distinguished Mayor of our Borough, who had passed away last month.

Thank you for your support at the last election. Because of you, David Cameron is the first Conservative Prime Minister in 13 years and the Government’s plans to build a strong economy and a big society are in full swing. Now, to help us communicate with you, we've launched this new local website.

We're building a Britain that offers everyone dignity and security in retirement. SHARE this to let everyone know.

Our long-term economic plan is helping hardworking families - by giving more people the security of a job, cutting income tax for 26 million people, freezing fuel duty and keeping mortgage rates low.

SHARE this important post with friends - and let's stick to the plan that's giving hardworking families more financial security.

Top global economists are clear: we must stick to our long-term plan to secure a better future for families across Britain.

We’re building a Britain that offers everyone dignity and security in retirement.

If you’ve worked hard during your life, saved, paid your taxes and done the right thing, you deserve dignity and security when you retire.

It’s a key part of our long-term economic plan and it’s about the type of country we want to build: one where if you put in, you get out. And no one has put in as much as our elderly.

Our five commitments for dignity and security in retirement will:

  1. Reward those who have worked hard by continuing to increase the State Pension through the triple lock
  2. Reward saving by introducing a new single-tier pension
  3. Give people the freedom to invest and spend their pension however they like – and let them pass it on to loved ones tax-free
  4. Give everyone the help they deserve in later life by protecting pensioner benefits including the free bus pass, TV licence and winter fuel payment
  5. Ensure Britain has a strong economy, so we can protect the NHS and make sure no-one is forced to sell their home to pay for care

These commitments reward those who have worked hard and done the right thing – and will secure a better future for our elderly and for Britain.

1. The deficit is falling

January saw the largest monthly surplus in the public finances since the crisis. That means we're on track to halve the deficit as a share of national income this year.

As part of our long-term economic plan, we’re dealing with the deficit so we live within our means and don’t leave our children and grandchildren with more debts than they could ever repay

2. More jobs being created - and the highest employment rate in history

There are 1.85 million more people in work since 2010, and the employment rate is the highest in history - meaning a record number of people with the security of a job to provide for their families.

3. Inflation falling

Inflation has fallen to a record low - helping household budgets go further, so families are more financially secure.

4. Wages rising

Pay is up 2.1%% in the year. Wages are rising faster than prices - meaning more money in people’s pockets.

On the deficit, jobs, inflation and wages, our plan is working and helping families be more secure.

But in an uncertain world economy all of this progress will be at risk unless we carry on working through the plan that is delivering stability and rising living standards.

Share the facts and let everyone know that we are building a stronger economy – and securing a better future for Britain.

Our long-term economic plan is getting Britain back on track - and giving families peace of mind and security for the future. SHARE this video to let friends know.

Families are the bedrock of our society – and we’re on their side.

The Prime Minister made a commitment to recognise marriage in the tax system and we’re delivering on that commitment with the Marriage Allowance.

Helping families is at the heart of our long-term economic plan. The Marriage Allowance will mean more than four million families can get a tax cut from April, giving them that little bit extra financial security.

It’s something that we can only afford to do because of the growing strength of the British economy.

But this is about far more than pounds and pence; it’s about valuing commitment.

Families raise children, care for the elderly, and keep our country going. This tax change is about saying, as a society: we recognise that. Share this post to let know.
