Lucy Nethsingha & North East Cambs Lib Dems

North East Cambridgeshire Liberal Democrats would like to thank everyone who supported them in recent elections. In 2015 on Fenland District Council we gained a seat in March North alongside the one we already held in Parson Drove Wisbech St Mary. On East Cambridgeshire District Council we held our seat in Sutton which was gained in a by-election in 2014. There are no Labour or UKIP councillors on either Fenland or East Cambs District Councils. Only the Liberal Democrats can challenge the Conservatives locally.

In 2016 on Cambridgeshire County Council we gained the Sutton Division.

Around 20,000 people joined the Liberal Democrats nationally after the 2015 General Election and another 18,000 have joined since the EU referendum in June 2016.
