A very happy winner! - Cllr Michael Skinner centre - with James Sunderland MP and Angela Richardson MP
Cllr. Michael Skinner was delighted on a rainy Saturday morning to be at South Hill Park to receive a very special bottle of House of Commons whisky signed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
It was his prize for joining and winning the South East Conservatives Association auction to raise funds for election campaigning.
Bracknell MP James Sunderland came along to congratulate Michael and his bottle of whisky was donated and presented by Angela Richardson, MP for Guildford.
“I knew about my auction prize but Angela’s presentation at South Hill Park was a super surprise made possible by James.
I was also thrilled to have my Hanworth branch members and fellow Councillors attend the presentation.
I’m wondering whether the bottle should remain unopened or whether I should raise a toast to all our recent election successes.”
"It’s contributions like the one Michael made that really made the difference in the South East. It’s something that will have helped not just during the recent elections but going forward and I thought it was only right that I came along to present his auction prize.”
"I echo what Angela said. It’s fantastic that we have so many active members in the Constituency and it’s great to see Michael winning this prize. It’s great to see Angela here today and just shows the strength of our members and constituencies working together as one team.”
