Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mayoral Campaign - A Big Thank You

Thanks to your support, the Liberal Democrat candidate in the Mayoral election, Rod Cantrill, was the clear, and only, challenger to the Conservatives in the competition. Rod gained 26% of the vote in the first round and that increased to 43% after the second round! All other parties polled less than 9% in the first round. 

We would like to thank Rod and his team for the hard work that they put into the campaign, and say thank you to the thousands of people who voted Liberal Democrat.

So, what might this result mean for the General Election vote in Huntingdonshire on 8th June? Well, it certainly reflects the strong showing of support that the Liberal Democrats received in the county council elections, where our vote increased by 11%. The Liberal Democrats are, clearly, the main challengers to the Conservatives. Our policies appeal to both “One Nation” Tories, many Labour voters and the Greens, which mean that we have a fantastic opportunity to push the Conservatives really hard in this seat.

Vote Liberal Democrat on 8th June. Together we will make things better!

Liberal Democrat Councillors Working Hard For You....

Not just election time...all year round

We're often asked what we actually do all year...and the answer is simple...we work for our residents to resolve lots of those issues that people can't get sorted on their own or don't know where to start with.  In the last year that's meant helping people with a wide range of concerns - we average several new pieces of case work each week.

Our membership keeps on growing and our new members are active! - here’s the story of one recent joiner

Tim Farron announced yesterday that there are now over 100000 members in our party. And what we see nationally, is also true in our District. At the start of the year we had well below 200 members, we now have over 300 members

One of our new members is Ethan Stone. On 18th April Ethan contacted Ste Greenall (District Secretary) and said “I would like to know what I can do to become a more active member of the party.” Very quickly, Ethan, along with his partner, Ellie, agreed to get out onto the streets to deliver his first leaflets. 

After completing his first delivery Ethan sent the following message to Ste

key_Ethan_and_Ellie_final.jpg
 

Ste is very impressed with Ethan’s, and his partner Ellie’s drive and enthusiasm. It’s a fantastic example of how ANY member - old or new - can get involved and feel part of the party’s activities. 

Ste asked Ethan to tell us his story, as he thought others would be interested, so here it is.
