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.

    Throughout this terrible disease, people have not only faced heartbreaking loss of life, but also crushing anxiety over their livelihoods.

    Lockdown has been necessary to prevent an even greater catastrophe, but the economic shutdown has thrown millions of people into financial hardship.

    Liberal Democrats have been fighting to make sure people do not feel left behind as the country slowly recovers. We cannot allow this to create a new wave of inequality in Britain; the damage done to businesses and jobs falls harder on some than others.

    Like many young people and students in the early 2000s, I first joined the Liberal Democrats because of Charles Kennedy's brave stance on the invasion of Iraq.

    Charles played a courageous role in steadfastly opposing military intervention, putting both his and the party's reputation on the line. I joined a million others marching on the streets in protest, pleading with Blair's Government to change course.

    Article: Aug 2, 2020

    As leadership voting opened this week POLITICO sent both contenders 'quick-fire' questions including " Should the UK rejoin the EU?"

    On that Ed replied: "I'll always believe our best place is in the EU, but our job now is to convince the country of that. If the opportunity ever arises for us to rejoin, and we can take the public with us, I'll be at the frontline of that fight."

    What are the Liberal Democrats calling for?

    We're calling on the Government to grant indefinite leave to remain in the UK - the right to stay - to all foreign nationals currently working in the NHS and social care, and their families.

    How many people from other countries work in the NHS and social care?

    Throughout this crisis, the Government's communications have been an utter disaster.

    Yet more mistakes reveal how necessary it is for an inquiry to be launched now

    To announce a regional lockdown of millions of people not only just hours before it's enforced, but with no clarity on the new rules coming into place, is beyond comprehension.

    On behalf of the Liberal Democrats, I would like to send best wishes to all Muslims celebrating Eid al-Adha.

    Eid al-Adha commemorates the Prophet Ibrahim's test of faith. It also marks the end of Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

    I hope that all of us will take this opportunity to reflect on those values of selflessness, charity and community which are at the heart of Islam
