    Is conference for me?

    It is! Conference offers a broad variety of content and offers something for activists, policy geeks and for those who just enjoy talking and hearing about politics. You can choose to just watch or you can get more involved whether that is speaking in a debate. If you're up for it then why not ask Ed Davey a question about something you care about or vote on future party policy. There is truly something for everyone.

    Liberal Democrats won a stunning victory in North Shropshire, taking one of the Conservatives' safest seats.

    Liberal Democrat candidate Helen Morgan received 17,957 votes, representing a swing of 34% from the Conservatives and giving her a majority of 5,925.

    North Shropshire was the 58th safest Conservative seat in the country, with former Conservative MP Owen Paterson having a majority of almost 23,000 votes in 2019. This represents the second biggest majority overcome in a modern by-election, after Christchurch in 1993.

    Article: Nov 16, 2021

    Two knife bins have been placed in Folkestone to give anyone in possession of a bladed object a safe place to dispose of it.

    One of the bins is at the Canterbury Road entrance to the Canterbury Road Recreation Ground and the other is near the Payers Park Car Park, off Dover Road.

    The scheme encourages anyone with a knife, or any other potential weapon, to dispose of it in these safe places without fear of prosecution.
