  • Will Forster - Woking Community Hospital
    Article: Jun 8, 2017
    Will Forster shares the below with Woking today:
    Since the snap General Election was called, I have had the pleasure of meeting thousands of people across Woking - whether that's from knocking on doors, attending hustings, or people recognising me whilst I am out food shopping.
    I have met so many people, from first time voters to lifelong Conservatives, who are unhappy with our current Government. Whether it is cuts to the police force, the struggling NHS, nurses being forced to use food banks, or the Hard Brexit agenda - people are angry. This is not the direction they want Britain to go in.

    Thank you to everybody in Surrey Heath constituency for the amazing welcome I have had over recent weeks.
    This has been an election campaign that nobody really wanted. Theresa May denied it was going to happen.
    Despite this everybody got stuck In and we had an amazing local campaign. Every household had at least one mailing delivered by Royal Mail. We delivered a further leaflet right across the area. We knocked on many doors across the constituency.

    Article: Jun 7, 2017

    Have you heard from us? Our team of volunteers has been hard at work knocking on doors and delivering leaflets to every household in the constituency getting our strong, local and liberal cadidate, Will Forster's message across. This is a massive task for us and we have worked hard, without the access to major donours that our opposites have.

  • Epsom Hustings
    Article: Jun 7, 2017

    The re-scheduled Epsom & Ewell Hustings on Tuesday evening went off well at St Martin's, where more than 150 people gathered to grill the General Election candidates.

    In his opening statement, Lib Dem candidate Steve Gee called on the government to "stop the barbaric assessments of disabled people" in the benefits system.

  • Ann-Marie Barker talking
    Article: Jun 6, 2017

    Ann-Marie would like to be your MP because she wants to give Surrey Heath a constituency MP. Ann-Marie will live in the constituency, open an office in an easily accessible location in the constituency and hold MP surgeries in locations across our local area on a regular basis. She will be an MP that is there for you rather than for the furtherance of her political career.

    Liberal Democrat councillors in Surrey have slammed the Conservative Cabinet at County Hall for cutting vital services provided to young vulnerable adults across the county.

    The cuts were decided at a meeting of the Conservative cabinet last week, with nearly £450K axed over the next two years from outreach services targeted at hard to reach young people in Surrey. The consultation period for the proposed changes was only 8 weeks in length, contradicting the County Council's own guidance known as the Surrey Compact, which recommends a 12-week consultation.

  • Article: Jun 4, 2017

    We send our sympathy and thoughts to those affected by the atrocities in London last night and will be suspending campaigning for the General Election today.

  • The Economist
    Article: Jun 3, 2017

    Great endorsement from The Economist on the Liberal Democrat offer in this election. It points out our honesty in asking for a penny on income tax to help fund health and social care, that we would reverse the worst of Tory welfare cuts and propose constitutional reforms.

    "They [Liberal Democrats] are more honest than the Tories about the need to raise taxes for public services; and more sensible than Labour, spreading the burden rather than leaning only on high-earners. Unlike Labour they would reverse the Tories' most regressive welfare cuts. They are on the right side of other issues: for devolution of power from London, reform of the voting system and the House of Lords, and regulation of markets for drugs and sex."

  • Housing
    Article: Jun 3, 2017

    The cost of housing in Surrey H eath is considerably higher than the national average. Prices from March 2016 - March 2017 have risen 1.4%*, with the average property costing £386,000. People are struggling to get onto the housing ladder and as a result of higher demand, rents are rising.

    We need affordable housing in line with household budgets. Realistic funding methods and support schemes such as part rent, part buy, equity loans and social housing need to be made available for young people to be able to live in their own home.
