Nigel Huddleston has been reappointed as a Conservative Party candidate.

The current Mid Worcestershire MP will be looking to defend his seat, which will see its name become Droitwich and Evesham as part of the boundary changes.

The changes will affect residents in the Wychbold and Harvington and Norton wards but will not come into effect until the next general election.

Mr Huddleston said: "I am delighted to be adopted as the Conservative Party candidate for what will be the Droitwich and Evesham constituency whenever the next General Election is called.

“It has been an honour to serve my constituents for the last eight years as their Member of Parliament. 

“I hope to serve for several more, but the choice is (as always) in their hands.”

He added: "The constituency boundaries remain the same until the next General Election, so I will continue to serve the people living in the Harvington and Norton and Wychbold wards until then.

“It is important to note that these boundary changes are for parliament only and do not affect local council services."

Mr Huddleston was reappointed as party candidate by a panel of local party members who conducted a secret ballot.

There is currently no date set for the next general election, but it will come no later than January 24, 2025.
