Liberal Democrats nationally and in North Shropshire have grown massively since 2016, doubling our membership. We are emboldened and invigorated. We exist to get things done, ensure local and national government works for you and not the other way around.

The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.

Open means open-hearted, open-minded, forward-looking, modern, green, internationalist and pro-European. We believe Britain is at its best when it is creative, innovative and outward-looking, comfortable in the fast-changing modern world and open to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation and the digital revolution.

Tolerant means diverse, compassionate and generous. We will always fight injustice and stand up for the underdog, the outsider, the individual, the minority and the vulnerable against the powerful.

United means we will always put the interests of the whole United Kingdom first. We reject the divisions in society, whether between young and old, urban and rural, leave and remain, or between regions and nations. We believe we are stronger – as communities, as a country and as a world – when we work together in our common interest.

We believe in Opportunity. That everyone, no matter what your background, should have the same chance in life. We want to fight injustice, reduce inequality and break down the barriers that hold people back, whether it is in schools, the workplace or anywhere people are denied a fair chance.

We want to give all our children a brighter future in a fairer Britain where people are decent to each other, with good schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.

That starts with a strong and stable economy, fit for the long-term, without which we can’t have a strong NHS, good schools and decent public services, and without those creating opportunity is impossible. We are the only party that combines economic competence with a plan for strong public services and an optimistic vision for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.

How you can help

There are many ways you can help the Liberal Democrats.

Clive Geary, Weston Rhyn
Former life-long Conservative voter
I joined because…
“Although I have been a Conservative voter since I was old enough to vote, I have never been a member of a political party. After the EU referendum I had grave doubts about the direction that our Country is taking and I will never vote Conservative again. Following the great Liberal Democrats victory in Richmond Park I joined the party, realising that many more people must feel like me. I joined the party as I want to become involved with what is going on and so I started helping with canvassing locally for the local elections in May 2017. It is clear to me that: the only way to change things for the better, both locally and nationally, is to be a Liberal Democrat.”

Since the 2015 General Election, our membership numbers have doubled, Nationally and locally in North Shropshire. Membership is at record levels and we are far more active on the ground right across the country.

Lee Bennett, Oswestry

I joined because…

“I joined after the EU referendum result. After the result I saw our country heading in the wrong direction. Our country is at its best when it is an open, tolerant and united country. I felt it important that I got involved to help fight for those Liberal Democratic values. My first hands-on experience was being part of the amazing team who helped win in the Richmond Park by-election. Since then, I’ve joined the welcoming local party, stood as a candidate for Shropshire Council and Oswestry Town Council.” Often the simplest and easiest way to help the Liberal Democrats is by joining the party. If you did no more than that we would be very grateful. Many members are active campaigners on local issues that impact on us all every day. No all members take that step and that is OK. If you did then you can be assured that you would have plenty of training and support.
