Ward Surgeries

Your local Liberal Democrat councillors hold regular advice surgeries in their wards and in public places such as local libaries to make it as easy as possible for you to talk to them and raise local issues with them.

At this time face-to-face surgeries are of course not taking place, however Councillors are making themselves available in a range of ways. See below for current details of surgeries held by Liberal Democrat ward councillors:
