    Affordable homes, young people's services and road safety are the biggest priorities in the town, according to research recently completed by local Liberal Democrats in Kenilworth.

    Throughout the month of October local LibDem volunteers have been out and about on doorsteps to seek the opinion of 800 households throughout Kenilworth to find out the main concerns of local people.

Respondents were also asked what they liked most and liked least about living in Kenilworth.

    Last weekend there was a gathering to thank our candidates in the recent elections, all of whom would have made first - class councillors if only more voters had agreed with us -- and especially to thank Richard Dickson and John Whitehouse for their superhuman efforts in running the campaign and giving us so much of their time, energy, enthusiasm and professionalism.

    Warwick & Leamington Liberal Democrats would like to extend a warm thank you to our enthusiastic local campaigner, Haseeb Arif for all the hard work he put in to this year's general election campaign. Haseeb was a very impressive and capable candidate for us, working hard with limited resources, in a difficult climate for the party. His performances at the hustings meetings were superb, where even the other candidates commented on his excellent performance! We are proud that he retained his deposit, attracting 2512 votes (5%) and beating the Green Party candidate.

    Since polls closed on Thursday, more than 10,000 new members have joined the Liberal Democrats.

    The surge continues as Liberal Democrats across the country have been fighting back and making the case for liberal values of freedom, liberty and change.
