Daniela Parker became our acting Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Weaver Vale in December 2018. Since then she has been campaigning hard for the Lib Dems in Weaver Vale by canvassing on the doorstep, contributing articles in the local press and increasing her social media presence.
Our increased vote share in the recent local elections in Cheshire West and Chester and the European elections are testaments to our hard work and dedication locally and nationally.
We now need to formally confirm Daniela as our parliamentary candidate for the next General Election whether that be quite soon or as scheduled in 2022.
We have a Weaver Vale PPC Selection Meeting at 7.30 pm on the 15th July at Frodsham Community Centre.
The meeting is open to Lib Dem Members and Supporters though only Weaver Vale Members will be able to vote.
The Liberal Democrats had a brilliant night when the European Election votes were counted.
In the North West we won two MEP seats – our best ever result. We won the most votes of any party in the boroughs of South Lakeland, Stockport and Trafford.
Returning former MEP Chris Davies is joined by Jane Brophy.
Nationwide we scored our best ever result in a EU election by some margin, taking 20% of the vote – our previous best had been 14.4% in 2004.
That translated into 16 MEPs – our largest ever group. Across London we topped the poll taking three seats, while overseas our fellow European Liberal (ALDE) parties won the most votes across the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, the Czech Republic and Estonia.
Nationwide we beat Labour and the Conservatives by a clear margin and underlined our position as the principal party of Remain.
Thank you to everyone who gave us their support on Thursday 23 May.
We achieved our best set of local elections for many years locally and of course nationally and these give us a great springboard for the Euro Elections on 23rd May.
In Cheshire West, we now have two Councillors up from none 4 years ago.!
The Council is now in No Overall Control and we will use our influence to campaign on the issues we care about most.
Paul Roberts was elected to serve his community of Farndon – making him the second Lib Dem member after Malcolm Gaskill beat Stephen Burns, Labour, and former CWAC deputy chairman, by just 11 votes to represent Winsford Swanlow.
In Cheshire East our Chair Mark Ireland- Jones built on his superb campaign at last year’s by-election and got very close to taking Bunbury Ward and Richard Derricutt gave Tory Council Leader Cllr Bailey a scare coming up only 78 votes short in Audlem! Overall we added 2 councillors in Cheshire East doubling our representation to 4 on what is now a hung council.
In Tarvin and Kelsall Ward a great campaign from Ted Lush and John Edwards meant we came within 25 votes of winning one seat in the ward
We fielded 80 candidates across Cheshire in the local elections on May 2nd.
There were 30 candidates in Cheshire East and 50 across Cheshire West and Chester (CWaC). This was a record number in recent elections and demonstrates the strength of the Party.
All our candidates worked hard and achieved excellent results and we now have a solid membership and campaigner base to build on.
Its a great springboard for the European Elections on May 23rd and we are working hard for those now too.
