    • Ballot paper
      Article: May 5, 2018

      Thursday's elections saw major victories for the Lib Dems as we took control of Three Rivers, South Cambridgeshire, Richmond upon Thames and Kingston upon Thames councils. We also successfully defended our control of Eastleigh, South Lakes, Sutton, Cheltenham and Watford.

      Across the country we gained 75 council seats, whilst the Conservatives overall lost 33. Locally we gained seats in Mole Valley and Portsmouth where we are the main opposition. Our special congratulations go to Bob Smytherman who held on to his seat in Tarring in Worthing with a significant majority.

      West Sussex County Council provides a huge range of services across the district, such as social care for adults and young people, fire and rescue services, as well as looking after the majority of local roads.

      The council is currently consulting local residents on what matters most to them, to drive the priorities for their strategic plan. So its really important that as many local residents as possible fill out the survey. This can be done through picking up a copy of the survey at a local council office or library, or alternatively filling out the survey online here:

    • Lib Dem members on Save Our Schools march
      Article: Apr 25, 2018

      L ib Dem County Councillor Kirsty Lord and local Lib Dem campaigner Alison Bennett joined the Save Our Schools march in Worthing protesting against the pitifully low funding for schools in our area. West Sussex is the lowest funded county council in the country, receiving around £11.8 million less than similar authorities, and £15.1 million less than the average (WSCC). Our schools and our pupils are suffering as a result. Lib Dems would invest an additional £7 billion in education to end the inequalities in funding and give all our young people the chance to suceed in life they deserve.
