News from the local Liberal Democrats

    Article: Aug 4, 2020

    Since this article was written, the work on the brick pavers which Mohammad Fayyaz has been campaigning for, has been done. I hear complaints all the time about the state of our roads here in Chesham: the lack of drain maintenance causing floods, the potholes, the streetlights not working and so on.

    "I can't breathe!" echoed around the world. These were George Floyd's last words as he was being murdered by a police officer in Minneapolis. The policeman knelt on Floyd's throat for nine minutes when he arrested him after a local store cashier alleged he had passed a dud $20 note. Three other policemen stood by and did nothing to stop it.

  • Windrush Day
    Article: Jun 22, 2020

    The MV Empire Windrush docked at the Port of Tilbury on 21 June 1948, and passengers disembarked a day later on 22 June 1948.

    Windrush Day marks this anniversary. Those who arrived on the Empire Windrush, their descendants and those who followed them have made and continue to make an enormous contribution to Britain, not just in the vital work of rebuilding the country and public services following World War 2 but in enriching our shared social, economic, cultural and religious life.

  • Chesham Mosque
    Article: Jun 21, 2020
    By Mohammad Fayyaz

    Like all mosques, churches, synagogue and temples in Britain, Chesham Mosque is closed at the moment because of Covid-19. However, since 21 June should have been nationwide Visit My Mosque Day, it's a good opportunity to celebrate our mosque's presence at the heart of Chesham.

    The present building was opened in 2005, replacing an earlier mosque in two houses on the other side of Bellingdon Road. Getting it built was a major challenge for the Muslim community, finding and buying a suitable site, getting planning permission and then finally constructing the mosque. It cost a total of £1.6 million, which was a lot of money for us to raise, but gaining planning consent was perhaps the hardest part. I am pleased to say that Liberal Democrat councillors were very supportive throughout.
