    Residents have drawn up a petition calling for a new crossing to be installed on a "lethal" stretch of road in Lichfield.

    Article: May 3, 2019

    Congratulations to Paul Ray and Helen for their re-election in Lichfield district council and East Staffordshire borough council elections.

    Across the patch thanks to our other candidates, no fewer than 27 of them, for their courage and hard work, in a number of cases getting very close to election in seats long held by other parties. Miles Trent was especially unfortunate to miss out on winning a district council seat by just 7 votes!

    We have a by-election in Brecon and Radnorshire!

    Brecon and Radnorshire is a seat that we held until 2015, and we hold the Welsh Assembly Member seat.

    As a child of the Windrush generation, Windrush Day is hugely important to me. I'm so glad that we, as a society, are marking it.

    The term 'the Windrush Generation' stems from the arrival, on June 22, 1948, of the ship The Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks, just east of London, bringing with it the first immigrants from the Caribbean.
