Newham Conservatives set out their vision for the borough at a special community event in East Ham last Sunday.
Hosted by community activist Syed Hussain Ahmed at East Ham Conservative club, Vicarage Lane, the afternoon featured a number of guest speakers including Bangladesh High Commissioner Mohamed Mijarul Quayes.
With just five months left before next year’s elections, the group listed council waste, high parking charges and fears about crime as some of the major issues on which they will be fighting their campaign.
The Tories have not held a seat on the council since the 1994 elections with Labour having held a majority since 1964.
However mayoral candidate Stefan Mrozinski believes things could be about to change.
