North Somerset Council is launching a new service to link residents in need to the fantastic support being offered by communities. North Somerset Together is an initiative that will help residents who have no support from family or friends and who are socially isolated access the support they need during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond. It will also help those who want to volunteer to get involved or donate to link up with the right organisations, and signpost businesses to relevant information. It brings together a wealth of information to help anyone in the community find out what is available, what help is needed, and contact groups and organisations directly
North Somerset Council has set its most open, fair, and green budget to date for the year ahead, agreed at a meeting last week (Tuesday 18 February). The rainbow administration's Budget will see a council tax rise of 1.99% in April in addition to a 2% levy the government has allowed local authorities to raise specifically to help fund the increasing costs and demand for adult social care. This means the average Band D council tax bill for council services in the coming year will be £1,433.50.
North Somerset Liberal Democrats hosted their Annual Dinner on February 21st 2020. The event in Long Ashton attracted nearly 100 Liberal Democrat members and supporters.
Last Friday, the North Somerset Liberal Democrats hosted their Annual Dinner. Cllr Sue Mason, Chair of the North Somerset Liberal Democrats, thanked the hall of around 100 Liberal Democrat members and supporters to celebrate the election of seven new Lib Dem Councillors in the Council and a vote share increase of over 8% in the North Somerset Constituency during the General Election.
North Somerset has rallied behind North Somerset's local Lib Dem Candidate, Cllr Ashley Cartman, who has soared ahead at the starting post this election. Judging from the fantastic response our Lib Dem Campaigners have had on the door and in our campaign events, We think Ashley Cartman is the local champion North Somerset desperately needs to demand better for our constituency!
By now hundreds of supporters and activists have come to support Ashley in his events in Nailsea and Long Ashton, you can join him in the upcoming Meet the Candidate Sessions at:
