    Ringlestone Community Clean-up

    Community spirited residents joined local Liberal Democrat Councillor Tony Harwood on Saturday morning for a summer clean-up of Dickens Road open space, Pepper Alley and River Medway tow-path. The litter and fly-tipping haul included scores of beer cans, wine bottles, angling detritus, a baby car seat and garden refuse. Most of this totally irresponsibly dumped rubbish posed a potential danger to local children and wildlife.

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.
