The results of the 2015 General Election are in, here in Chester they are as follows:

Obviously this result is a big disappointment to us, and is a reflection of a nationwide picture which has seen the Liberal Democrats suffer crushing losses. We will be looking into how we can do better next time both locally and at a national level.

In the meantime we’d like to thank all of you who voted for us, and also all of you who helped in other ways with delivering leaflets, putting up posters, canvassing, “telling” and so forth.

Now is an exciting time to join the Liberal Democrats, you can do so online here. If you prefer, contact our Membership Secretary, Annie Mead – whose details are on the Officers page here.
