It is with much sadness that I have to report that Watford Conservatives have lost a true friend, the late Lord Tristan Garel-Jones. Tristan was Watford’s MP 1979-97, being made a Life Peer in 1997. During my two terms as Chairman of Watford Conservatives, Tristan was always there to offer support and helping hand, a really wonderful colleague and friend. Lord Garel-Jones died aged 79, on 23rd March 2020. Below is a quote from Lord Salisbury, Chancellor of the University of Hertfordshire, sometime Chairman of Watford Conservatives.
