UPDATE: Andrea Attends Newmarket Stadium Meeting with Party Chairman

Patrick Mcloughlin, the Chairman of the Conservative party, joined a meeting with the Stadium Trust regarding the development of the Newmarket Community Stadium. Patrick was joined by local conservative party candidates: Andrea Jenkyns, Antony Calvert and Mike Jordan.

Patrick is responsible for the Conservative Party’s administration and direction, having an inside look in the Cabinet. The meeting brought together stakeholders and policy makers to discuss how further progress can be made.

Previously Andrea launched a petition which gathered 1,117 signatures, the petition called for a clarity and transparency from Wakefield Council over the development of the Newmarket Community Stadium by having a public meeting between the Stadium Trust, the developers and Wakefield Council.

Andrea and Antony have been working to secure transparency in the negotiations between the developers and Wakefield Council for local fans and residents.

Commenting on the meeting Patrick said:

“Wakefield residents are being supported by their local Conservative candidates. As I’ve seen today, Wakefield Trinity are a huge part of the local community, and the council must sort the issue of the new stadium as soon as possible.

Andrea, Anthony and Mike have stepped up to support the club and their fans, and I know that if they’re elected on 8th June they will continue working hard for Wakefield’s residents and the club as MPs.”

Also commenting on the day, Andrea added:

“It has been good to have Patrick at our meeting today, this has supplemented the petition that I launched earlier this year. This issue is about the fans and local residents, getting the best deal for them and securing Wakefield’s sporting history. Clarity and transparency is needed from Wakefield Council and the developers and I will continue to press them until they deliver.”

The conservative candidate for Wakefield, Antony Calvert, said:

“Wakefield Trinity has a long and successful past as being at the heart and soul of Wakefield. I am so pleased Sir Patrick came today to show his support for keeping Trinity in Wakefield.”

Commenting on the meeting the conservative candidate for Hemsworth, Mike Jordan, added:

“The stadium is in the Hemsworth constituency but I believe that a new purpose built community stadium near the motorway network is the way to go. This will then release the site to help redevelop that area on Doncaster Road to the benefit of all neighbours. It will also ensure the ongoing success of Wakefield Trinity.
