    In addition to our local campaigning activity, Lib Dems from Plymouth and South West Devon have been sending out teams to help the campaigns in seats across the South West. In particular, we have been helping the excellent Sarah Wollaston, so that she is re-elected as the Lib Dem MP for Totnes, but we have also had members visiting seats such as St Ives and North Cornwall. Here are a few recent photos from the campaign trail.

    The Lib Dem campaign in South West Devon has made fantastic progress. Sima and her team have been out campaigning with local party members and supporters. Lots of leaflets have been delivered, lots of great conversations with local residents have taken place, and lots of battling the elements has been necessary during this winter election! With two weeks to go, our team is still hard at work.

    Sarah Martin is standing against the Conservatives, in Plymouth Moor View, as the voice of remain. Under the Conservatives, our economy will be hit by a damaging Tory Brexit. Furthermore, our public services are underfunded, and not enough is being done to tackle the climate emergency. The Liberal Democrats have a deliverable plan to solve these issues build a brighter future. Read Sarah's leaflet below to find out more.

    Lib Dems have been out across South West Devon supporting your local Parliamentary candidate Sima Davarian. Not only will Sima make an excellent MP, but a vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to stop Brexit, solve the climate emergency, and rescue the NHS. It's been fantastic to see so many members and supporters joining the campaign, and we look forward to sharing more news via our website and social media channels.

  • Car load of posters and stakes (Dennis Draper 2019)
    Article: Nov 13, 2019

    This is about Dennis. Dennis is not a candidate and not famous (until now). Dennis is the man who delivers the stakeboards and window posters in the South West Devon constituency. Most of the people are in densely populated suburbs around the eastern side of Plymouth, and a couple of smaller towns, but most of the constituency is very rural, running from Dartmoor down through the South Hams to the sea. We joked about Dennis delivering by boat, on a day when heavy rain and flooded roads prevented some people from getting home, and the trains didn't run on time, or even at all in some cases. But what he mainly had to contend with was mud. The South Hams "area of outstanding natural beauty" is in November an area of outstanding mud. We don't know exactly why we have to have an election in December, but we do know for sure why it's not usually chosen.
    Anyway stakeboards are up in strategic locations, for the first people who volunteered to have them, and more to come. And a heap of posters to go out for windows.
    On the map, the northern part where there are no place names, we don't deliver there, no-one lives on the hills there but sheep and ponies. And you can see the neighbouring constituency of Totnes, for all that Totnes is a pretty little town, it's a very rural area, with no real conurbation, and also runs from the moors to the sea coast. Around the country there must be many people like Dennis in wilder locations, and with winter coming on, not an easy job. Which leads us to wonder ... does anyone actually deliver by boat ?
