      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

      Gloucestershire's Liberal Democrats are bringing forward a motion to the next Full Councilon 15th May calling for the adoption of an ambitious carbon emissions reduction plan.

      Proposed by Cllr Iain Dobie, the motion calls for a recognition of man-made climate change, the recommendations of the IPCC's special report and the consequences of failing to heed the science.

      Tewkesbury Lib Dems are delighted that they have gained 6 seats: 5 from the Tories and one from an independent. The total number of councillors is therefore 8, with 5 from Churchdown, 2 from Bishop's Cleeve and one from Innsworth. We also increased our vote across the Borough.

      In addition in the Churchdown by-election for the County Council seat Ben Evans romped home with a tremendous 1405 votes nearly 600 ahead of his nearest rival.

      Winchcombe Lib Dems have won an assurance about preserving free cash withdrawals in the town following a supermarket take-over.

      After numerous complaints by Winchcombe residents on social media about the ATM at Budgen's supermarket starting to charge for withdrawals, Colin Davison, Lib Dem candidate in the local elections, wrote on behalf of Winchcombe Lib Dems to the Midshires Co-op chief exec, as his society is due to take over Budgens and this would then be the only ATM in town.
