At the 2018 Waverley Liberal Democrats AGM last month, local chair Paul Farthing celebrated the progress the Party had made locally over the past year.
It started with the Central and Ockford by-election last December, where we won both seats available, for first Waverley borough councillor and a second on Godalming Town. We then ran a very strong campaign last May, just missing out in Farnham Castle, and then a great effort in Hindhead in October, where we have done less well in recent years.
These campaigns have galvanised our local members, and membership has doubled over the last couple of years. We have a great opportunity to make a real breakthrough in the local elections next May – the first nationwide poll after the official date that the UK leaves the European Union.
Mr Farthing added, “The public are looking for practical solutions to local problems. We have proved that we can work alongside local residents to bring out real change, such as our work to save Green Oak School.”
Want to help?
In May 2019 we will be contesting local elections across Waverley Borough. We aim to create a strong Liberal Democrat presence both district and town council level, so there is a great deal of work to be done. There are many different ways in which you could help, from knocking on doors, delivering leaflets, clerical work, and on social media. There will be opportunities to do this as ppart of a group, or alone (even at home), as you choose.
