Lib Dems open new branch in Chiswick

The Liberal Democrats have opened a new branch for Chiswick following a major upturn in membership in the various W4 postcodes. The local party is appealing for more local residents to join either as full time members or as supporters under the national party’s new registration scheme.

The new Chiswick Chair, James Thellusson, said: “We’ve had lots of interest from people in joining the Liberal Democrats or helping our ‘Exit from Brexit’ campaign. But local people are also concerned by the Tory policy to force through a third runway at Heathrow and support the LibDem position on issues like air pollution.”

The new branch will give people a focus and a vehicle for campaigning on Chiswick and borough wide issues as well as supporting liberal values.”
