The character rich spa town of Cheltenham has many claims to fame, from horse racing's Gold Cup to its world class festivals of music, literature and science. This picturesque town at the edge of the Cotswold Hills is also home to some of the best secondary schools in the country, such as Cheltenham Ladies' College and Pate's Grammar School. Cheltenham is the base for the British Government Communications Headquarters, known to you and I as GCHQ. The distinctive offices of this vital centre of security is affectionately nicknamed 'The Doughnut,' because of its ring shaped structure and not its jam filled centre. The town also accommodates a variety of organisations and businesses from across a range of sectors, including GE-Aviation, UCAS, Zurich Financial Services, Spirax-Sarco Engineering and SuperGroup plc, owner of the Superdry fashion label.
Cheltenham's current MP is local man Alex Chalk. Alex won the seat in May 2015 after beating the Liberal Democrat, Martin Horwood, by 6,516 votes. The Cheltenham Conservative Association has been growing rapidly since the election win and hopes to continue this success.
