A cluster of Liberal Democrat balloons.

Congleton Liberal Democrats provide an open, liberal voice for your community. As a party, we believe in power being vested where it makes a difference - championing the voice of local councils and local people. We believe that it is the duty of the state, whether it is the national government or your parish council, to enable all citizens to foster creativity, embrace diversity, and contribute fully to their local communities.

At the local level, we campaign on practical issues that make a difference, whether it is local planning, bus routes, the unitary authority, or so much more. We are always open to hear from you on what is most important to you, so please get in touch with us if you have a cause that should be championed. We will always seek to help where we can.

Our Party is growing - we continue to attract increasing numbers of new party members, and new supporters. The 2019 General Election saw us increase our share of the public vote to 11.5% from 7.4% in the previous General Election. The 2019 European Elections and Local Elections saw Liberal Democrats making gains in both seats won and our share of the vote.

As Liberal Democrats we are working for cleaner, caring and connected communities. We believe in full transparency, meaningful public consultations and local decision-making wherever possible. We believe in proper funding of public services. If you also believe in these things and want a different way of doing things then join us at www.libdems.org.uk/join-local

We look forward to meeting you.

    Read Philip Davies' letter to Ed Davey, and Ed's reply:

    We did it!

    The Vagrancy Bill is a blunt outdated instrument that makes criminals of rough sleepers. It hurts the people most in need in our society.

    Liberal Democrats have been fighting to scrap it for years. And today, the Prime Minister has been dragged kicking and screaming to a point where even he admits it needs to go.

    The autumn party conferences traditionally mark the start of the new political season. They are a time to reflect on the past year and set out plans to succeed in the coming year.

    Both politics and coronavirus have made it a tough time since the last round of conferences. But we can look forward to this new political season with confidence that if we continue to raise our game, we can prosper. We've seen signs of that already, including with Sarah Green's fantastic win in Chesham and Amersham and also with the latest net favourability leadership polling from Savanta ComRes:

The dates of Spring Conference will be 11-13 March 2022 and we will announce the dates and venue for Autumn Conference in due course.

    This Autumn, we say goodbye to Isabelle Parasram, our Vice President responsible for working with ethnic minority communities.

    Isabelle has been a tremendous advocate, leader and example in the Party and she will be greatly missed. We wish her all the best in her new role as Chief Executive of Social Value UK, which has led to her making the difficult decision to step back from the demands of the Vice Presidential role.

    Nazir risked his life working with the British Forces in Afghanistan as an interpreter from 2009 - 2012.

    In 2021, he and his family were forced to leave behind their former lives in Kabul for fear of Taliban retaliation against him and his loved ones.

    He can't show his face in interviews because it would endanger his relatives who were left behind.
