Southwell Liberal Democrats are a friendly and sociable group of Party activists. We are a branch of the Newark and Sherwood Local party which covers the Newark and Sherwood District Council area. We have eight members on Southwell Town Council and two Councillors for Southwell Ward on Newark and Sherwood District Council. We campaign all year round in Southwell and the surrounding villages through Focus newsletters and this website.
Our Councillors are very active in promoting Southwell and in trying to maintain the town as a successful and pleasant place in which to live. We instigated the Neighbourhood Plan for the town and promoted devolution of services from the District Council so we could have more say in where our money is spent. We keep a careful watch on affairs at the District Council and campaign for greater transparency in their policy making.
We meet every fourth Wednesday of the month in the back room of the Reindeer pub on Westgate, except in August and December. We also hold social and fund raising events at intervals throughout the year. Click on "Local News and Events" to find out about our next function. You will be very welcome to attend.
