On Saturday 23rd, the Lib Dem team were out in Romsey Cornmarket speaking with residents about everything from their local concerns, enviromental issues, and electoral reform. There was lots of positive conversations with residents and many welcomed our campaign to Stop the Social Care Cuts at Hampsire County Council
At its Special Council Meeting on Thursday (23rd June 2022) Test Valley Borough Council agreed unanimously to submit a bid to the Government's Levelling Up Fund for up to £20 million towards the delivery of elements of the Andover Town Regeneration Masterplan. Part of the plan involves the creation of a riverside park along the Western Avenue gyratory and opening up the River Anton, which is a tributary of the River Test. The bid was proposed by Council Leader, Phil North, and strongly supported by Romsey Councillor, Mark Cooper.
The Hampshire County Council cut of £700,000 in charitable grants to social care groups is extremely short-sighted. So says Romsey's County Councillor, Mark Cooper. "The work done by local charities in the field of social care is extremely cost effective. The reduction in funding to the charities will lead to additional costs having to be picked up by other publicly funded bodies such as the NHS and the Hampshire Constabulary".
Over the last few weeks we've been out and about on the doorstep. We've spoken to voters all over R&SN with a fantastic response. Many people switching to Lib Dems from the Tories. The Lib Dem team also attended Southampton Pride event on 11th June with a wonderful response to the Lib Dem LGBT policies.
A party spokesperson said: "This is a historic result in Southampton. After more than 10 years without a Lib Dem councillor in Southampton, the Lib Dems are back.
This also marks a huge turning point in the Romsey & Southampton North constituency with the Lib Dems continuing to grow their pool of Councillors.
Richard will be a dedicated, hard working and proactive councillor who will ensure Bassett sees positive steps forward. Residents continued to be disappointed by the Tories in Bassett and we have seen that at the ballot box yesterday."
