    Back the Wiltshire Lib Dem's "You Are Welcome" campaign.

    Our Council must say that our EU residents are welcome and valued. Our message needs to be "We want you to stay!".

    Liberal Democrats here in Wiltshire are welcoming the chance to put their plan for the county.

    Wiltshire Liberal Democrats passionately believe that Britain is stronger in the European Union. We are the biggest, strongest anti-Brexit party and we have led the fight to stop Brexit for three years.

    Just as important to Liberal Democrats in Wiltshire, is tackling the Climate Emergency. Our candidates are dedicated to cracking down on air pollution and investing in renewable energy, creating green jobs across the UK. This is a global emergency where working from within the EU is needed to lead on this emergency and protect our planet.

    In Trowbridge FOCUS

    It's time to demand better for Trowbridge. Our town has been ignored for far too long by the ruling Conservatives.

    Under them, our town centre has declined, our roads are a mess and our schools don't receive fair funding, so our children are disadvantaged.

    The Conservatives have cut our Police. They have abolished our Youth Service. Local, young families are struggling to find an affordable first home.
