The Liberal Democrats in Rushcliffe are a growing local party, working on behalf of all the residents of Rushcliffe.

Candidates 2019

Councillors Rod Jones, Lizzie Hewitt and Annie Major, with fellow Lib Dem candidates

We now have three elected Liberal Democrat members on the Conservative-controlled Rushcliffe Borough Council.

We keep in touch with local residents all year round through regular FOCUS leaflets and email updates, and we contest almost every seat in local and parliamentary elections.

The Liberal Democrats are proud to be the only party commited to fighting the damaging effects of Brexit, both locally and nationally.

If we can help you in any way, please get in touch.

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

So, as we continue to work to stop Brexit, we Liberal Democrats will also look ahead and develop a proper national strategy on the basis of a clear understanding of what our interests are.

    London is a liberal city. Over 250 languages are spoken in the capital, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. As host to one of the largest Pride events in Europe and the biggest carnival outside Rio, London and its residents celebrate diversity and embrace difference.

    London is also a Remain city. It is home to a third of all the EU citizens living in the UK and every sector in the capital - from hoteliers to health-workers, builders to bankers - relies on EU migrants to thrive.

    Congratulations to Jane Dodds and the Welsh Lib Dems for the brilliant result in Brecon and Radnorshire! Thank you to everyone of you who helped, both by appearing in the constituency to knock on doors and deliver leaflets, and for those who phoned, helped with admin tasks from a distance too. Jane is already showing that she will be an exceptional MP, joining Jo Swinson's parliamentary party.
