      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.

      Is the Council Safe in Tory Hands?

      Is the Council Safe in Tory Hands?

      Austerity is anything but finished. The squeeze on local government is ongoing and severe. How Tewkesbury Borough has responded is worrying. The Tories, who have been in full control of the Council since 2007, have made a fetish of keeping council tax low, even going for six years in a row with no increase. It's not a popular tax, but the Borough's share is quite small and we need the services that the Council provides. Have you noticed how poor the waste collection service has been lately, for example?

      Alex Hegenbarth, Parliamentary candidate for the constituency (right), said "There are real concerns about the lack of neighbourhood policing in the area and the impact this has on community safety. A new police station for Bishop's Cleeve will help the police support local residents and provide better support for our community."

      Gloucestershire Liberal Democrats have set out their proposed amendments to improve the Conservative County Council budget for 2019/20.

      The Liberal Democrats have already described the Conservative Budget, with its five per cent council tax rise, as "disappointing". In response the group has revealed it's "Six to Fix" budget proposals, to be presented to Full Council on 13 February.
