Marylebone High Street

About our ward

We are a team who constantly aspires to bring local Conservatives together.

Our social events, underpinned by talks on a variety of topics, provide an opportunity for long term residents to welcome those who have recently moved to this vibrant part of Marylebone Village, which includes one of the most charming high streets in London, the Wallace Collection, Wigmore Hall and other attractions.

Our team reflects the diversity of our local community. There are people from six different countries among our younger and older members.

An New, easier to use Website

Since the election residents have been telling us about the frustrations they have with the Council’s website and online services. We agreed with them and dedicated an entire cabinet portfolio to improving our online offer.
