Welcome to the North West Hampshire Lib Dem Website!

Thank you for visiting our website and thank you also if you are one of the many people who supported us in the elections in 2015.

For the Liberal Democrats, one of the most important things is to be accessible to local residents - all year round. We believe in letting local people know what we are doing and in actively involving people in shaping what happens in the local area. This website is a part of that - with a wide range of information about our campaigning locally and nationally.

If you have any suggestions of other information you would like to see on this website, please do e-mail us at info@nwhantslibdems.org.uk. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Commenting following the final declaration of results in the local elections, Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

    "Now that all votes have been counted, it's incredible to see that it is the Liberal Democrats who have made the greatest gains in the English local elections. We have increased our share of seats more than any other party and are the only ones to increase their number of councils.

    The argument on trade of those in favour of Britain leaving the European Union appears to be that the United Kingdom is such an important trade partner of the remainder of the EU that it can obtain a trade deal which gives it access to the internal market of the EU but which would not constrain the British government to accept internal market regulation and even allow it to abolish parts of the existing internal market regulation.

    CLIVE JONES won the Hawkedon ward of Wokingham Borough council for the Liberal Democrats on 5th May 2016.

    " I am delighted to be the new Lib Dem Councillor for Hawkedon ward.

    "I have led the campaign to have a quieter M4 motorway and the electorate have recognised this. I have got a quieter road surface coming and an acoustic fence by the motorway. We want the fence to be higher and longer.

    "The Conservatives plans to spend £139m on the town centre in Wokingham was very unpopular. Residents saw it as a waste of money. This was the case in other parts of the Borough as well where the Lib Dems came close to winning.

    "Primary and Secondary school pupils not getting their first choice of school and the awful under funding of schools in Wokingham were big issues.

    "We have produced regular Focus newsletters and residents read them. We keep in touch with them all year round and we have knocked on hundreds of doors." said Clive Jones.


    Cllr. Clive Jones



    The last time the Lib Dems won this ward was in 2003.

    Clive was the Lib Dem PPC for Wokingham at the 2015 General election.
