A POLITICAL group has opened a new office in Cirencester.

The Cotswold Conservative Association's office is at the new serviced office complex at Watermoor Point in Cirencester.

A spokesperson for the association said: "Previously having been based at the Gloucester Business Park in Brockworth, it was felt that with the current Boundary Commission changes to the constituency and Cirencester being on the join of the two proposed new constituencies it was more appropriate to base an operation there." 

"Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP also has an adjoining office to cement the close working relationship between the Association and MP." 

Sir Geoffrey said: "This is an exciting moment for me as a member of parliament, moving the constituency office to Cirencester makes absolute sense.

"Not only does this strengthen the Conservative presence in Cirencester but also provides a convenient venue for surgeries and a range of meetings with constituents, businesses, charities and other organisations."

Leader of the Conservatives at Cotswold District Council Tony Berry said: "Cirencester is the capital of the Cotswolds and it’s great that we now have a permanent presence here confirming our strong commitment to the Cotswolds and bringing our operations centre close to our voters."
