North Somerset's Annual Dinner 2020

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. 


Cllr Ashley Cartman[1] said: “We are two months into a Conservative Majority, and 9 months away from full withdrawal from the European Union, but now is not the time for resting on our laurels. Our Liberal Democrat led authority have worked to make North Somerset a more open, fairer and greener place in live in this week’s budget despite the funding challenges imposed by this Tory Government. North Somerset Council is acting as the last line of defence to Conservative policies, which is something we can be proud of.”

Baroness Bakewell of Hardington Mandeville[2] said: “Boris’ Administration is going to be a painful one for our rural and coastal communities, prioritising cost-effectiveness over fairness, shiny infrastructure over essential connections, and willing to sell off our natural resources to the highest bidder. We must all take it on ourselves to adopt the thoughtful tone and steadfast energy of Paddy Ashdown to demand better for our towns, villages, and local communities.” 

[1] Cllr Ashley Cartman is North Somerset Council’s Executive Member for Finance and was the Lib Dem Candidate for North Somerset Constituency in 2019’s General Election.
