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

Rod & Karrar at Boundary Rd Park ()

Councillors Rod Jones and Karrar Khan

We currently have two 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 a hard 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.

    The People's Vote Stall in Grantham was visited on Saturday by Cllr Phil Knowles, a former Candidate for the European Parliament, to offer his support for a People's Vote and to encourage activists to keep up the campaign.

    " People voted in or out on referendum day and voted in good faith. Others didn't vote for a variety
    of reasons, perhaps by choice, commitments that resulted with them being away from home etc.

    Surely it's the correct thing to do to put the final deal or whatever scenario we are faced with at the end of the negotiations to the community in a Peoples Vote.

    The community can then decide is it the Deal they want, the deal they expected or the deal they need to secure their future, the future of their family and friends, their jobs and more"
