We talk to voters to find out how they feel about politics and this helps us campaign more effectively.
Lots of people are very wary of the idea of talking about politics but I can promise you that over the last 20 years I have found an easy way to find out what we need to know in a short conversation, either on the phone or on the doorstep. Come and join a training session with everyone else who wants to make sure that the Lib Dems take control of the county or unitary authority.
Liberal Democrat Councillors in Wells will be supporting local wildlife by selling individual native woodland saplings direct to the public, clubs, and businesses at bulk discount rates. On Saturday 31st October, a Wells market stall supported by Wells City Council will sell saplings for people to take home and plant in their gardens or on land they may own. This amazing price of just £1 each also includes the option of free tubes and stakes.
The 20-60cm saplings on sale will be the classic native species of Blackthorn, Crab apple, Dog rose, Goat willow, Hazel, Hawthorn and Rowan. These trees were chosen because they will provide additional nectar and pollen for pollinators from the springtime and fruit and nuts for other wildlife in the lead up to winter. These trees will also provide extra habitat for wildlife with a Hawthorn hedge or tree able to support over 300 species.
Earlier this year in February the Liberal Democrat party made a clean sweep of elections by winning an impressive three out of the three available positions on Wells City Council. The plan to sell native woodland saplings directly to the public on a non-for-profit basis was a key part of the February 2020 campaign pledge. It is great to see that winning Liberal Democrat campaign pledge turned into action that will make a difference.
Our local Party holds regular monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of the month in Wedmore (except in August and December). These meetings now take place on Zoom and start at 7.30pm. Every other month the meeting takes the format of an Open Forum with a speaker and Q&A session at the end. These meetings can make for a lively debate, so if you would enjoy meeting like-minded people and discussing politics, these offer a great opportunity to do so. Alternate meetings are local Party business meetings.
