Lib Dems open Richmond campaign headquarters

Local Liberal Democrats have opened a new campaign headquarters in Richmond Market Place.

Liberal Democrats Parliamentary candidate, Philip Knowles, claimed the move reflected the boost in support the party had received over the last two years in the area.

He added: “The Conservatives have had it easy round here for way too long.

“On the doorsteps, people are telling us there are sick of their vote being taken for granted and have no time for the type of toxic politics being pushed by Boris Johnson.

“Tactical voting website Best for Britain have run the numbers and are advising people that if you want to take on the Tories in Richmond (Yorks) then you need to vote LibDem.

“Voters are clearly listening. Life-long Tories in our area are not just promising us their vote, but proactively tearing up their Tory membership cards and joining the Liberal Democrats.”

Philip added, “Locally as well as nationally, we have more LibDem members than ever before.”

The new HQ is at 4 Trinity Church Square, Richmond, North Yorks (opposite WHSmith) and is open 10am to 4pm Tuesdays to Sundays.
