Hilary Megginson, Chair of Fareham Liberal Democrats, writes: The recent elections proved that, our party is on the up across the country and, in many places, the only credible challengers to the failing Conservative Government.
Here in Fareham, we proved we have the skills, the personalities and the energy to keep improving. We came through the election with some respectable results, winning three seats and coming a close second in many others.
Whether you are a Councillor, a candidate, a member, help to canvass, make phone calls, deliver leaflets, or anything else, your input has contributed to making a difference to the Liberal Democrat position within the borough. You are all winners, so thank you to each and every one of you.
Looking to the future, we cannot and don’t want to stop here. Although it’s less than two weeks since the election we have already started to build a forward plan, using lessons learned from the last few weeks and months.
We want to do everything we can to put us in the best possible position. What we would love to be able to do is to reproduce the winning ways from Portchester East and Fareham East in other wards across the borough. More about that to follow soon but for now it’s all about celebration and thank yous.
It’s an honour to be Chair of Fareham Liberal Democrats and I’d like to thank all those who work tirelessly for this party and this community.
