    The Liberal Democrats in Bucks, Berks, Hants, Oxon and the Isle of Wight make up the South Central Region.

    The Region gives us a structure for counties to join together where it is helpful to do so and be more effective in our campaigning. It also gives up a stronger voice when making representations to the party nationally about policy or the party's overall strategy.

    Ever feel like you never get to see other Lib Dems from the region? Do you sometimes think "I wish I could have a chat with Jane and Bill from that other local party over a nice pint"? Well now's your chance!

    For those of you who are coming to Federal Conference, we are having our annual South Central Regional get together on Sunday 16th September from 18-19:30.

    It will be in The Hop Poles pub, 13 Middle Street, Brighton, BN1 1AL which is where we had it two years ago.

    Come thirsty.

    Regional Policy Committee would love to hear from members with policy or debate ideas for Autumn Regional Conference. We can help research and draft your ideas into a motion and push it further in the Party. Motions passed at the regional level help influence federal policy, both on their own, and as a step towards a successful motion at Federal Conference.

    If you are new to the party and want to know how you can influence party policy, unsure of what 'policy' is, or have an idea you want us to develop regionally or nationally, please email Mohsin Khan, chair of the Policy Committee, at mohsin.khan@wadh.oxon.org and we'll help you.

    We are also looking for people who can speak or advise on topics at future events to get in touch. If you have any expertise in particular field (for example: education, police, health, defense, engineering, etc.) and would like to contribute to regional or federal policy in any way, please email Mohsin at the email address above.

    • building an economy that works for everyone;
    • investing in high-quality public services and a decent welfare system;
    • building a mass movement that can win elections and make our country more liberal and more democratic.

    "We need more opposition voices in the council chamber, to hold the ruling Conservative group to account, to challenge them, to ask difficult questions and to scrutinise their proposals, which ultimately are funded by you, the council taxpayer."


    Time and again when we've been canvassing in recent days in the Quainton Ward for the AVDC Council by-election on May 3, voters have been telling us they have yet to make their minds up.

    You are not likely to hear the answer to this in the mainstream media. Because there are so few LibDem MPs, the party's voice in Parliament is rarely heard, and its views seldom reported.

    So on the major environmental issues of the day, climate change, air pollution, plastic waste on land and sea, most voters have little idea of our policies. Those who voted for us, and studied our literature in elections, will have a rough idea where we stand, which is generally ahead of the other main parties on these subjects.
