Bonnington Square Festival

Oval Ward Councillors Rob Banks and Andrew Sawdon joined Lib Dem Parliamentary Spokesperson Caroline Pidgeon at the Bonnington Square Festival on Sunday 1 July. The team enjoyed looking around the stalls, meeting local people, and the home made cake in the café.

One of the most original and fun parts of the day was the best dressed wheelie bin competition! The team really loved the bin dressed as a bride, amongst the many great entries!

Summer is here

Vauxhall Liberal Democrats have been out in force at the many local summer fetes and festivals over recent weeks, with a stall and guess the number of sweets competition.

Kennington Fete success

Caroline Pidgeon, Lib Dem PPC for Vauxhall, attended the Kennington Fete in Cleaver Square on Sunday 20th May to support this excellent annual community event. The rain held off this year, and Caroline enjoyed talking to lots of Kennington residents as well as local businesses and members from community groups such as the Friends of Kennington Park, and a local Tai Chi group. Also there were Lib Dem Lambeth councillors, and Charles Kennedy and his family.

Community could lose out on school building use as Chancellor dallies

Liberal Democrats on Southwark Council have warned that local communities are set to lose out on using school buildings because of delays by Chancellor Gordon Brown.

Southwark Lib Dems have been campaigning for some time to make new school buildings VAT exempt. In his budget in March, Gordon Brown made reference to accepting such a change but the delay in announcing details could hit Southwark hard.

Save Borough Post Office

Liberal Democrat Councillors were out in force outside Borough Post Office to collect signatures on a petition to save the Borough High Street Post Office, which faces closure. The Government has already closed the Post Office at the Elephant and Castle, and now looks set to close yet another Post Office in Southwark.
