New Year's Resolutions - here's an idea:

December 31, 2018 3:24 PM

HH LibDems Litterpick 20182019 is a local election year in Dacorum.

In 2018 the Liberal Democrats enjoyed our best district council election results in 15 years. We took control of councils like South Cambridgeshire, Kingston-upon-Thames and Richmond upon Thames from the Conservatives. In Watford and in Three Rivers - neighbouring districts to Hemel Hempstead where Lib Dems run those councils - we made further progress.

We also won here in Dacorum, in Northchurch (hello Cllr Lara Pringle!).

in 2019 over 9,000 council seats and the control of councils around the country will be in the balance. It's a huge chance to build on our local successes. Having more Lib Dem Councillors makes a real difference for the communities we represent.

Liberal Democrat Councillors in Hemel Hempstead are Active, Caring and Effective. In Hemel throughout 2018 some of the things our local Councillors have done, as the Opposition front bench, include:

Motions to Council on inserting a Green environmental backbone to the new Local Plan being developed by Dacorum; planning for the effects of Brexiton services and local EU nationals, and calling for funding to enable local NHS services to be kept open 24hrs.

Many questions are raised by Lib Dems at Full Council including on issues like stretched resources, strategic planning for leisure facilities, recycling, domestic abuse training, adventure playgrounds and parking problems. We are calling for more openness in council plans and decisions.

We want to see more Liberal Democrat Councillors elected in May 2019 - and this is how you can help make it happen:

Volunteer some of your time to knock on some doors, deliver some leaflets or contribute in a myriad of other ways to help our candidates win. You don't have to be physically energetic - we need indoor people too!

Join the local party - we're a nice bunch, environmentally concerned and practical about getting Dacorum run better. Join here

Stand for election. Councillors have the chance to make a real difference every day for people in their community.

Donate to the local party. The Liberal Democrats rely on small donations from individuals like you. We've never had the big business or trade union cash the other parties can count on, especially at a local level. You can do it online, on this site. Thank you.

Any questions about volunteering contact myself on 07809 679744 adrian@hhlibdems.org.uk or Chairperson Lloyd Harris chair@hhlibdems.org.uk .

Let's run Dacorum better.

Happy New Year!

Cllr Adrian England
