    Plymouth Lib Dems are campaigning in the South West with a clear Stop Brexit message for the EU elections. Today a group of us helped in Totnes, canvassing and running a street stall with leading candidate Caroline Voaden. We have lots more planned in Plymouth and beyond, with members out canvassing and leafleting. We had a great response from residents and members of the public. The fact that we are polling so well, proves that we are the leading remain party. It is clear that the Lib Dems represent the best choice for voters who would like to remain a member of the EU.

    Plymstock Dunstone - Sima Davarian

    I'm a Plymothian to my core, having been born in Freedom Fields Hospital. I'm really proud of my diverse family background, with my maternal roots being traceable to Ireland and Germany, and my father having emigrated here from Iran several decades ago.

    My childhood was based in Plymstock and I attended local primary and secondary schools before reading English Literature at Cardiff University. I have been fortunate enough to travel in some wonderful countries but Plymouth has always had my heart.

    Here is a brief summary of the recent party Conference in Brighton, from our local party Chair.

    'I spent two days at Conference moving swiftly between the two venues to attend various speeches and learning events. For me the highlights have to be the speeches from three Liberal Democrat MP's.

    Connor Clarke, an ex-pupil of Stoke Damerel Primary School, has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Stoke by-election. Connor, who recently completed his second year at Plymouth University, has lived in Plymouth since he was a boy.

    Connor said, "It is humbling to have been selected to fight the by-election on July 26th for the Liberal Democrats. I lived for over ten years adjacent to Blockhouse Park, in the heart of Stoke, and after Primary School I was fortunate to be a student at Stoke Damerel Community College. I am well aware of the important role our schools have in their communities and how they must receive proper support locally and nationally to continue inspiring our younger generations. It is thanks to my early education and the support I received, that I was able to go to Plymouth University."
