    Rosaline Janko comments on the election result

  • Litter

    One of the issues that residents keep mentioning to me is litter. It is a problem that affects most of Fant.

    One notable exception is Clare Park; it has plenty of litter bins and is regularly cleaned. It well deserves its Green Flag status. So why is the rest of Fant so neglected?

Tim Farron - Leader of the Liberal DemocratsThe 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.

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity.

We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.
