Eastbourne & Willingdon Lib Dems

Election's off, but local Lib Dems promise to keep on campaigning

October 9, 2007 12:00 AM

Stephen LloydLIBERAL Democrats in Eastbourne & Willingdon have announced they will carry on with their local campaigning despite the decision of the Prime Minister not to hold an election this autumn.

Local Liberal Democrat campaigners have been delivering thousands of newsletters and calling on local residents throughout the summer and early autumn and will continue to do so. The response to Stephen Lloyd's NHS survey, which in the last few weeks was sent out across the whole constituency has been very high. So far around 2,000 people have returned the survey giving their views on all the different services undertaken by the NHS in Eastbourne & Willingdon. A detailed report will be issued soon.

Stephen Lloyd, at a meeting of members said, "The Liberal Democrats are not just around when there is an election coming up. We campaign all year round.

"Gordon Brown ramped up expectation of an autumn election and only backed off when he realised his majority in Parliament would disappear.

"The Liberal Democrats in Eastbourne & Willingdon however are not disappearing. We will keep on campaigning. While the other parties close down for the winter following Mr Brown's announcement, the Liberal Democrats are already hard at work writing our next community newsletters to keep residents in touch with what is happening. Our success in halting the County Councils unpopular pay to park scheme is a good example of how the Lib Dems never give up a fight in support of local people."
