Bob Stewart has served as the MP for the Beckenham Constituency since 2010 and has been adopted as the Conservatives Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the new Beckenham & Penge constituency*.
Bob was educated at RMA Sandhurst and the University of Wales, spending 26 years as an Army officer reaching the rank of Colonel. Over that time he completed seven tours in Northern Ireland and led the first British soldiers into Bosnia as British UN Commander - for which he was awarded the DSO. Thereafter, in civilian life, he worked in private business.
Bob is married with children attending local schools, two of whom are enthusiastic members of the Bromley Youth Music Trust and one who plays rugby for the Beccehamians at Sparrows Den. He lives in the constituency and commutes to Westminster by train.
* The constituency does not formally change until the next General Election, so Bob remains the MP for the exisiting Beckenham constituency until the election. If you are resident of Clock House, Penge & Cator or Crystal Palace & Anerley and have an issue then you will need to contact the MP for Lewisham West & Penge.
