Welcome to High Peak Liberal Democrats!

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

High Peak Liberal Democrats thank candidates and voters

Dont get mad

On a difficult night for the Liberal Democrats nationwide the picture was not much different here in High Peak, with the Liberal Democrats Stephen Worrall being beaten into 4th place by UKIP and narrowly missing out on retaining his deposit. There was slightly more positive news in the local elections with both sitting Borough Councillors, Ray Atkins and David Lomax retaining their seats for High Peak Liberal Democrats. The situation was similar at Parish and Town Council level with Stephen Worrall retaining his Charlesworth Parish Council seat in the election and joining David Lomax and Barrie Taylor who were elected unopposd to Whaley Bridge Town Council.

There were also many hard working candidates who were unsuccesful in their attempt to win their Borough Council Wards and the local party wishes to thank them for all of their efforts which were greatly appreciated by the party, its members and those who voted for them.

We also wish to thank the thousands of people who did vote Liberal Democrat in this election, whether in the General, Borough or Parish elections. We will all work hard to represent you in the coming weeks, months and years.

Finally, membership of the party has been increasing markedly in the days after these elections and we welcome these new members with open arms. If you too feel that we need to "build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity" then don't get mad. Get active. Join now!
