Lib Dems made waves at Conference this weekend. Here's a quick roundup of the press coverage we got!
What a conference we've had!
From motions to keynote speeches to training, there was something for everyone and the quality of debate was, as ever, excellent.
We also got a huge amount of press coverage. Our stunning win in Chesham and Amersham has put us back in the spotlight - and the media are beginning to see that only we can dismantle the Tory Blue Wall.
We are looking for two enthusiastic people to join the East Midlands Lib Dem team, to help us build and support the Region working towards the next General Election. There are two roles being advertised currently and the closing date for both is midnight on Friday 29th October. Interviews are expected in the w/c Mon 1st and w/c 8th November.
As seats begin to elect new Parliamentary election candidates, now's the time to get your stationary stocked up.
After requests from a number of new candidates, we've worked with Election Workshop to put together a fantastic deal to ensure your candidate has a well stocked supply of letterheads for responding to casework.
This Autumn, we say goodbye to Isabelle Parasram, our Vice President responsible for working with ethnic minority communities.
Isabelle has been a tremendous advocate, leader and example in the Party and she will be greatly missed. We wish her all the best in her new role as Chief Executive of Social Value UK, which has led to her making the difficult decision to step back from the demands of the Vice Presidential role.
The President's award seeks to recognise people for their hard work, long service, and demonstrable dedication to the party, at whatever level.
This year's winner is Cllr Mel Allcott.
Mel first stood for election to the City Council in 2014 where she received 794 votes, 250 short of the winner. She stood again in the area in 2015 and 2016, increasing her vote share each time, and in 2019, in a by-election, she finally won with 1,307 votes. A fantastic achievement after 6 years of tenacious campaigning, always listening to the voters and focusing on the issues that mattered to them.
October is Black History Month - an opportunity to celebrate the enormous contributions that Black people have made across our country. FromMary Prince to Paul Stephenson, so many Black pioneers have transformed our society's cultural and political landscapes. We owe a great debt to everything they have achieved.
Yesterday, there were 6 local council by-elections. Here are the results so far! We are super happy to announce a successful gain from the Conservatives in the Peak District and made some excellent progress in Sunderland and West Suffolk!
We have always been the party of communities and we're so proud of our local activists standing up for people across the country!
