Conservative team looking for Norwich South success

A new chairman has been picked to head up the Norwich South Conservatives team as they look to May's city council elections.

Incumbent chairman Andrew Wiltshire, who is the Conservative group leader at City Hall, has stood down as chairman to focus on his battle to be re-elected as Bowthorpe city councillor.

He will be replaced as chairman by former city councillor Antony Little, who lost his seat last September.

His deputies will be Paul Wells and Eve Collishaw, who are, respectively, county and city councillors.

The changes were made at the Norwich South Conservative's annual general meeting at the Cellar House in Eaton.

Mr Little said: 'The Conservatives are doing everything we can, both locally and nationally, to put 13 years of Labour damage behind us. It is very well for Labour to oppose every spending reduction made, but what are their plans?

'I have a fantastic team behind me and lots of new people coming on board to help the party. We look forward to a very successful year in 2011.'
