Liberal Democrats won another double by-election in Cornwall last night in Newquay and North Cornwall with huge majorities.
The results in the Newquay Treviglas and St. Teath and St Breward come hot on the heels of convincing by-election wins in Launceston and Wadebridge and reinforce the Liberal Democrats position as the largest party on Cornwall Council.
Lisa Dolley, high profile Cornwall Councillor for Redruth North and deputy leader of the Independent group at County Hall has made the decision to leave the Independents to join the Liberal Democrats with immediate effect.
Lisa, who has fought and won two successive Cornwall Council elections as an Independent, made this decision because she has become increasingly disillusioned with the way the national Conservative Government has slashed local authority budgets in Cornwall to almost unworkable levels.
David Ekinsmyth, Lib Dem Cornwall Councillor for the Illogan Division has appealed for interested individuals to join a group working on the Neighbourhood Plan.
David believes the plan, which would cover the Illogan, Park Bottom and West Tolgus areas, should directly reflect the needs and wishes of the wider local community rather than just those of elected officials.
Nathan Billing's 'clean up day', aimed at tackling rampant weeds and picking up litter in Gwelmor has been hailed as great success. Now Nathan is calling on Camborne Town Council to take on the service.
The team was called in by local residents after Nathan did a door to door survey in the area. Local people were fed up of the council not spraying weeds and wanted something done.
Nathan Billings and Roger Richards have been chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidates for the upcoming Cornwall Council and Camborne Town Council by-elections in the Pendarves ward of Camborne which includes Barripper and Penponds.
Nathan is a local business man who runs a renewable energy firm based in Cornwall. He first came to Cornwall to study at the Camborne School of Mines, fell in love with the place and has never left. He is married with two children.
Julia Goldsworthy, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate has launched a brand new website http://www.juliagoldsworthy.org.uk/ with the message to constituents in Camborne, Redruth and Hayle that it matters who your member of parliament is.
Julia said: "On May 7th voters will be asked to go to the polls to decide who will govern the country for the next five years, but in an election year that is full of uncertainty it is more important than ever that people choose the person who they feel will stand up for them best here in Camborne, Redruth and Hayle.
Julia Goldsworthy, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle has welcomed the announcement that the Liberal Democrats have fulfilled their commitment to start two million apprenticeships in this Parliament, over 20,000 of which are here in Cornwall.
Liberal Democrats in Government have prioritised creating jobs and apprenticeships. Two million people have now started an apprenticeship since 2010. Vince Cable, the Lib Dem Business Minister, has made it easier for businesses to take on apprentices. He has given 40,000 businesses grants of up to £1,500 for each young unemployed person they take on as an apprentice and put £550m into improving college facilities for apprentices.
