      Nationally, the support Lib Dem Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey gave to renewable energy projects while in government saw the UK go without the use of dirty coal power for the longest period in our history - a huge step forward that happened because the Liberal Democrats were in power.

      Tewkesbury Liberal Democrats increased their vote from 19% to 28% across the Borough and saw new Councillors elected in Churchdown, Bishop's Cleeve and Innsworth, while the Conservative's vote share collapsed by 14% from four years ago.

      Alex Hegenbarth, Parliamentary Candidate for the Tewkesbury constituency, said "The huge swing away from the Conservatives and towards the Liberal Democrats shows the amount of dissatisfaction with Tories at both local and national level. Local residents are desperate for new and dynamic leadership - only the Liberal Democrats can provide that."

      1. Giving young people a voice - Last month we were again successful in proposing a motion calling for the creation of a Youth County Council. It's clearer than ever that our young people are engaged and deserve a voice on matters that affect them - with thousands of them joining us in opposing Brexit and so many going on strike to demand action on climate change.

      Julie Girling, who was a South West Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for the last 10 years, and lives in Gloucestershire, is calling on Remain voters to back the Liberal Democrats on Polling Day on Thursday May 23.

      Ms Girling was elected twice to the European Parliament for the Conservatives, before leaving them over Brexit. Ms Girling is widely respected across political parties and recently announced she was not going to join the Change UK team for the European Elections.

      She said " The Liberal Democrats scored a huge success in last week's local elections, gaining more than 160 seats across the South West.

      " Across the South West the Liberal Democrats just elected more than six times the number of councillors in the local elections and gained more than five times the number of seats. The Lib Dems are very clearly the lead Remain party in the South West.

      "Brexit would be a disaster for the South West, but it's not too late to stop it. I have no party political axe to grind here, I'm simply responding to the large number of constituents who have asked me for advice when considering their vote this time.. In my view, the best way to get a People's Vote to stop Brexit is to vote Lib Dem. That will send a very clear message to Mrs May and Mr Corbyn. That is what I will be doing. I urge other Remain voters to vote Lib Dem to stop Brexit."

      Responding to the news, Caroline Voaden, lead candidate for the Lib Dems in the South West said,

      "Julie Girling's endorsement for the Lib Dems is very welcome and marks a significant moment in our election campaign. Julie is quite right; the Lib Dem message is simple and clear: Vote Lib Dem to Stop Brexit.

      "We must make sure that Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn hear that message loud and clear when the votes are counted.."

      Tewkesbury and the SW Liberal Democrats want to stop Brexit.

      We want Britain to remain in the EU because it's best for our economy, environment and public services.

      In the SW Constituency we are electing 6 MEPs and there is a real chance that we can elect a Lib Dem here with your support.

      Our lead candidate in the SW Euro Constituency (which includes Tewkesbury) is Caroline Voaden
