"You Are Welcome" Campaign Goes to Wiltshire Council

February 21, 2020 3:00 PM
By Wiltshire Liberal Democrats

Liberal Democrats in Wiltshire are taking their "You are Welcome" campaign to Wiltshire Council.

The campaign aims to get Conservative controlled Wiltshire Council to do more to engage with our EU residents here in Wiltshire - some of whom have uncertain futures.

Many EU residents nationally have faced threats and abuse since the decision to leave the EU despite contributing significantly to our communities and the local economy.

Taking the challenge to Wiltshire Council, Councillor Brian Mathew (Box & Colerne) says "EU residents are absolutely welcome here in Wiltshire. The Council should be proactively reaching out and engaging with EU residents, who are our neighbours, friends and who are vital to our community and public life."

The motion, put forward by Councillor Brian Mathew and Wiltshire Lib Dem Group Leader, Councillor Ian Thorn (Calne Central) will be debated at the next Full Council on Tuesday 25th February.
