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.

    Voting reform is not about the electoral advantage of any party.

    It is about better democracy.

    As politicians we have a responsibility to ensure voters across the UK do not feel disenfranchised.

    In this election the Liberal Democrats increased their vote share by 4%, more than any other party, but achieved fewer seats in Parliament.

    Boris' bad Brexit bill is before the House of Commons today.

    So what are we doing to fight the damaging and dangerous effects it will have on democratic scrutiny, workers' rights, the battle against the climate crisis, and more?

    A happy and peaceful Chanukah to all Jewish people around the world!

    Chanukah is a special time of the year for so many reasons. It's about solidarity with friends and family. It's about overcoming adversity in impossible circumstances. Most importantly, it's about the power of faith and how it can make wonderful things happen.

    Happy New Year!

    Over Christmas and New Year, a team of HQ staff and almost 60 volunteer testers from across the party as well as the team at Prater Raines have been hard at work testing Lighthouse, the party's new Local Party Management tool.

    The feedback from those users has been really encouraging, they've found the system really intuitive and easy to use.

    Iran is governed by a brutal regime which has been openly hostile to the west.

    Donald Trump has yet again radically and recklessly escalated tensions in an area where peace-keeping was already on a knife edge.

    There is a real danger this will stoke further conflict, undermining peace and stability in the region. Given the severity of the crisis, the Prime Minister must make a statement about the UK's position immediately.

    The UK should not automatically follow whatever position the Trump administration takes, but work with a broader group of concerned states at the United Nations.

    As my Presidency draws to an end on New Year's Eve, I wanted to write to you with a final thank you for the extraordinary help that you have given the liberal cause over the last five years.

    To have faced three General Elections and the EU Referendum during these five years - as well as the snap European elections this year - has been unprecedented, draining for everyone who has worked in them. Our candidates and teams, party staff and the many members and supporters who have continuously found that extra bit of energy and effort kept fighting the liberal cause.
