    Kenilworth & Southam Liberal Democrats accept the result of last week's EU Referendum: as democrats we should do nothing less. We thank everyone who voted - as usual the levels of turnout across the constituency were amongst the highest in the country. We especially thank the young first-time voters, the people who will be most affected by the result.

    Open Letter to Warwickshire MPs

    17 January 2016

    Provisional Local Government Finance Settlement.

    I am writing to you on behalf of the Warwickshire County Council Liberal Democrat Group to express our deep disappointment over this year's central government finance settlement for the County Council, and the loss of funding that will now seriously reduce local services and at the same time increase the pressure on the taxpayers of Warwickshire. You will be aware that the County Council has being working hard on efficiencies and has delivered savings of £98 million since 2010, therefore meeting the challenge of funding reductions at the same time as rising demand.

    For the second time in less than five years, the Liberal Democrats are leading the fight to save youth and community services in Kenilworth from savage budget cuts by Conservative councillors.

    In 2011, Warwickshire's ruling Tories cut all county funding for youth and community services in our town. Local Lib Dems, led by Cllrs John Whitehouse and Ann Blacklock, helped to raise a huge petition which forced a rethink. The outcome was theKenilworthCentre charity, which took over the premises in Abbey End Car Park in 2012, and which has taken the provision of youth and community services in the town from strength to strength over the last 3½ years.

    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. Hundreds of households in each of the three Council wards of Abbey, Park Hill and St John's were asked to complete a brief survey which gave them the opportunity to express their views on a range of subjects, including Council services, buses and trains, the local environment, community safety, traffic and voting in elections. Respondents were also asked what they liked most and liked least about living in Kenilworth.
