On Thursday 14th July we met members - both new and old - over a few drinks at Cubley Hall in Penistone. A great evening was had by all, with many new members attending. We are currently organising our next social event. Check our Facebook page for updates when they become available.
Liberal Democrat and Labour peers have stopped the injustice of the Conservatives cutting Tax Credits
Thankfully Liberal Democrat and Labour peers along with others in the House of Lords realised the injustice of cutting Tax Credits for low paid workers. This issue affects many families in the Rotherham area who will lose on average £1300 each year.
You'll have seen that since the General Election in May 2015 the membership of the Lib Dems nationally has been swelled by around 20,000 new joiners. Locally we've also seen our membership boosted with the number of Lib Dem members across Rotherham and Barnsley doubled!
Welcome to all those new members who've joined in the last couple of months and thank you to those who've been in touch with us and come along to our "Welcome Meetings".
In order to be an officially approved Liberal Democrat candidate you must be a fully paid up member of the party and have been approved by the local party candidate selection committee. If you are interested in being considered or are thinking about joining the party please contact Janice Middleton on firstname.lastname@example.org
What results we're having this "Super Thursday"! Gold medals in cycling, shooting and canoeing and a first ever medal in women's judo: well done Team GB!
Events like the Olympics seem to me to show just how much Britain can acheive when we all work together. Labour won the Olympics, Boris Johnson delivered it and Liberal Democrats are in the coalition government. Never would I have belived such things could be.
