It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Sam Barker.
Sam had been involved with the Cambridge Conservatives since he was a student. He stood as a Conservative Council candidate in Romsey ward and was Director of the Conservative Environment Network. He previously worked as head of policy and government affairs at the charity Tearfund.
Sam took his Christian faith very seriously and it kept him strong through the last two difficult years. He was always cheerful, despite the difficult circumstances and when we last saw him in May at the Cambridge Beer Festival he was in typically good spirits.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time. His family have posted further information here.
