Conference huge success


Our Spring Conference in Bramhall ahead of the Local and General Elections was a huge success with double the attendance of last Spring Conference.

We were joined by seven Lib Dem parliamentarians including Party President Baroness Sal Brinton and one of our newest peers, Lord Goddard of Stockport.

An inspiring springboard for the campaign ahead.

Former MEP was “too good to lose”

Chris Davies

Chris Davies

Former MEP Chris Davies has been declared ‘Parliamentarian of the Year (MEP)’ for his work in achieving reform of the EU’s common fisheries policy.

The Liberal Democrat, who represented the North West of England from 1999 until May this year, was presented with the Green Ribbon award at a ceremony in the House of Commons by leading environmentalist Jonathon Porritt.

It was the second award that Davies has gained this year. In March his work secured him the title ‘MEP of the Year’ at a ceremony in Brussels.

The former MEP quipped: “Of course it’s an honour to have my efforts recognised and to have received these awards, but they hardly compensate for election defeat. Clearly the voters didn’t realise that I was too good to lose!”

Davies was selected for the Green Ribbon award by a judging panel from the Institution of Water and Environment Management.

He formed and led a cross-party campaign group in the European Parliament that campaigned successfully to reform the EU common fisheries policy, rebuild depleted fish stocks, and curb the wasteful discarding of fish.
