    You may have seen on our social media channels that a number of Plymouth Lib Dem members travelled up to London for the People's Vote March on Sat 23rd June.

    We joined up with Lib Dem members from across the country to show our support for a vote on the final Brexit deal. Over 100,000 people took part in the march. This included individuals from different political parties and campaigning groups, along with members of the public. A number of speakers addressed crowds at Parliament Square over the course of the afternoon, including Lib Dem leader Vince Cable.

    The Lib Dems put on a solid performance in the 2018 local elections, both in Plymouth and across the UK.

    We were the only party to make a net gain in the number of councils under our control, gaining Richmond, South Cambridgeshire, Three Rivers, and Kingston upon Thames.

    We also successfully held Eastleigh, South Lakes, Sutton, Cheltenham, and Watford.

    Our local election campaign has been progressing well over the last few weeks, as the 3rd May approaches. For the first time in several years we have candidates standing in all 19 city wards. We are offering a unique choice for city residents who feel let down by a succession of Tory and Labour controlled councils.

    My name is George Maunder and I am a son of this great city. I went to school at Montpelier Primary and Devonport High School for boys. I have roamed its streets, climbed its trees, swum in its pools and played in its parks. I have lived in most of the UK's major cities and yet my heart has always drawn me back to Plymouth. I have grown up here during a period of change matched only by its resurgence after WW2.

    Plymouth Liberal Democrats are fielding a full slate of candidates in the Plymouth City Council elections for the first time in many years. This reflects the overall growth in the party and the level of enthusiasm from its members.

    There has been a consistent increase in the turnout of Lib Dem candidates since the all-time low of the 2014 local elections when only four stood. This increased to 13 in 2005, 17 in 2016 and now there are candidates in every ward.

    Plymouth Liberal Democrats are urging the city's "almost 5,000" EU residents to back the party in the elections to the city council in May. The election, on Thursday 3rd May, is the last scheduled set of elections before the planned date for Brexit, in March next year.

    Almost 5,000 nationals of other EU member states are registered to vote for the city's local councillors, according to figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. Over 1,000 live in the St Peter & the Waterfront ward, with more than 500 in both Devonport ward and Sutton & Mount Gould ward. Drake and Stoke wards each have over 300.

  • Sir Ed Davey MP with Plymouth Liberal Democrats Sima Davarian and Hugh Janes (Caroline Voaden)
    Article: Feb 28, 2018

    Sima Davarian and Hugh Janes were among a number of Plymouth Liberal Democrats who supported the South Hams local party's annual dinner to hear Sir Ed Davey MP, former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. Sir Ed was upbeat about the current position for green energy and had signed a number of contracts before leaving office that meant the good work of the LibDems in Coalition could continue. Offshore windfarms have exceeded expectations in the energy they provide and it's low cost. At current rates, electricity from wind is about half the price of that predicted from Hinckley C Nuclear Power Station. As the life of wind turbines has increased dramatically this great source of energy is going to be supplying us with power for some time. Gratitude for Sir Ed's far-sightedness as a Minister was widely expressed.
