Witney West Oxfordshire Local Party

Witney Sign (By Y.m.oxon (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons)This page is about the day-to-day organisation of the local party.

We have an Executive Committee which plans election campaigns, provides membership activities and contributes to Liberal Democrat policy development through representatives attending regional and national conferences. The committee also selects candidates including the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate.

West Oxfordshire has a District Council and an MP. A few of the larger towns have Town Councils with political representatives but most Parish Councils are non-political.

In some towns and villages we have Lib Dem branches which organise local activities, campaigns and fund-raising. The branches and the executive committee keep closely in touch.

Our Region is South Central http://southcentrallibdems.org.uk/en/ .

Our constitution is available from the officers (below).

If you are interested in supporting the party you can

  • Join as a Lib Dem member - you will receive mailings from the local party (email preferred) at least annually for the Annual General Meeting. Your subscription is taken by the national party and we benefit with a small portion of it. You have a vote in national Lib Dem matters such as election of President;
  • Contact us as a supporter - we would be very pleased to hear from you;
  • Offer to help our campaigns directly, including by volunteering to deliver leaflets, offering a good site in your garden for a poster stake-board or a variety of other ways;
  • Make an on-going financial contribution however small to help with our campaign costs (printing leaflets etc);
  • Enter our 50-50 club which has a monthly draw.

You can send a message to any of the committee officers via info@witney-libdems.org.uk
