News from the North Somerset Constituency Liberal Democrats


The North Somerset Lib Dems now have a new constituency Chair, Sarah Hearne. After 3 years as Chair, Sue Mason has stood down, with grateful thanks from the Executive Committee for successfully steering us through a time of change including general and local elections. Thankfully Sue has agreed to stay on as Vice chairman.

Sue Mason

Under Sue’s chairmanship the 2019 elections to North Somerset Council saw 11 Lib Dems elected who now form a vital part of NSC’s Rainbow administration with Independents, Greens and Labour. The influential roles of Deputy Leader covering adult social care, health and housing, Executive Member covering finance, IT and legal matters and Executive Member covering planning and the economy are all Lib Dems, as are other important Chairs.

We are pleased to welcome Sarah Hearne to take over from Sue Mason as chair of the Constituency Party. She was born in Nailsea and has returned after living overseas. Sarah says “I joined the Lib Dems 5 years ago because I believe in the party’s values of liberty, equality and community. As Chair I want to build on the successes of the last local elections and I want to energise us after two very long, hard, years with an increased social calendar. We have a fantastic Executive committee who I know will provide support and advice but if you have any questions, comments, criticisms or offers of help then please contact me at [email protected].”

Social & Political Events

Sadly we decided to postpone the Annual Dinner until the summer because of uncertainty over COVID.  More news later.

Pint & Politics, Coffee & Chat, Drinks & Discussion

They all mean the same - getting together with others to talk about anything and everything.  We will soon restart meeting over Zoom and in person to join with other Lib Dem minded people in North Somerset. For more details or to discuss hosting an event yourself email [email protected]
