New members for Liberal Democrats

Nearly 50 people have joined Colchester Liberal Democrats following the General Election on 7th May - an intake of new members which has been welcomed by former MP Sir Bob Russell.

"After the sadness of the General Election defeat, there is great encouragement from a surge in membership for the Liberal Democrats across the country which has been reflected here in Colchester with the biggest number of new members we have witnessed in such a short period. It is fantastic."
Sir Bob said that those who had joined had expressed dismay at both his own defeat and the losses which the Liberal Democrats had experienced at national level.


"They all expressed a desire to help re-build the voice of liberalism. It is fantastic that so many have joined. I sense there will be more. Many of them are young people. This is just the tonic we needed."


Colchester Liberal Democrats will be holding a coffee morning and table top sale this Saturday, from 11am, at the Party's headquarters at Magdalen Hall, Wimpole Road. Non members are welcome.
