WELCOME TO TRURO & FALMOUTH LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

We are the Liberal Democrat Local Party for the Parliamentary Constituency of Truro & Falmouth. Our objective is to promote Liberal Democrat values, particularly by gaining democratic power in Parliamentary and local council seats.

Truro and Falmouth Constituency is one of six Parliamentary constituencies in Cornwall. It runs diagonally across central Cornwall, from St Agnes and Perranporth on the north coast to Falmouth and St Mawes on the south.

The constituency was created for the 2010 General Election by combining parts of two existing ones - Falmouth & Camborne and Truro & St Austell. Although the latter had a long history of Liberal and Lib Dem representation, the new seat is currently held by the Conservatives.

Cornwall Council is the unitary authority operating all major council services. It is currently run by a Lib Dem/Independent coalition.

Beneath the unitary council, sit Truro City Council, the Town Councils of Falmouth and Penryn, and a number of parish councils. Only the first two have councillors representing political parties.

If you are interested in joining us, please follow the link on the side bar to Join the Party. This will take you to the national website, and your details will be forwarded to us.

If you are a Liberal Democrat supporter in the Truro/Falmouth Constituency and wish to become more involved, please get in touch; you can e-mail your interest to info@trurofalmouth-libdems.org.uk.

    Climate change, liberalism, winning. That is my pitch to be leader in four words.

    As a party we have led the national debate on Brexit, and become the clear rallying point for remain voters. The result was amazing. Our best ever result in a European Election. First place in London. Beating the Conservatives in every region in the UK, and the Labour Party across the country. The Lib Dems are back in the game.

    Deciding to run for leader was not something I did lightly. This party has a history of leaders who had a huge impact on British politics, including people like Charles and Paddy, heroes of mine who I was so lucky to be able to know and work with.

    I believe you should only apply for a job like this if you have a clear idea of what you'll do if you get it. Equally, I want you to know what to expect if you decide to give me your support.

    I love this party.

    I was just 17 when I became a Liberal Democrat. Honestly, if you'd have told me that I'd one day get the chance to write this post as the party's new leader I wouldn't have believed you.

    The first thing I want to do is say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in this election. But special thanks must go to my good friend Ed Davey.

    This spring we ran a huge European election campaign - in which we ran our most sophisticated digital operation yet.

    And yesterday, we elected Jo Swinson as our new leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    "If you're born poor, you will die on average 9 years earlier"

    Inequality in life expectancy increased between 2012-14 to 2015-17 (the latest data available). In England, life expectancy at birth in the most deprived areas is 9.4 years less for men and 7.4 years less for women than in the least deprived areas.

    Well, that was close then!

    Can I start by thanking you, the members. I enjoyed meeting you across the country, hearing how your campaigns are going and what matters to you.

    I want to pay thanks and pay tribute to one particular party member, called Jo

    Thank you all so much.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    And as the first woman to lead our party.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    I joined this party when I was 17. And over the last twenty-two years, through all the ups and downs, the Liberal Democrats have felt like a family to me.
