Appeal for funds for upcoming campaigns

Over the next few months, we will be ramping up our efforts to get as many Lib Dems as possible elected on Huntingdon District Council in the May 2022 elections.

If it goes well, it might be possible to follow what has happened in the May 2021 County elections, and end the Tory dominance that has lasted uninterrupted since 1974. It is time for a change!

All the money we can raise locally will go towards leaflets, posters, Facebook ads and other local activities.  Please give generously via Nic Wells, our Treasurer by contacting him at [email protected]


AGM 2021

We will be holding our AGM by Microsoft Teams on 29th November and will send out details shortly.

We would very much hope to refresh the Executive with some “new blood”.

We particularly need a secretary to send out agendas and take notes of meetings.

Councillor Trish Shrapnel RIP
It is with the greatest sadness that we have learnt of Councillor Trish Shrapnel's recent passing. Trish was a dedicated and highly regarded member of Huntingdon Town Council, as well as a District Councillor for Huntingdon East.
During her time as a Councillor, Trish devoted herself to making positive and lasting change in Huntingdon. She was hugely passionate about her town and always went above and beyond to help, support and listen to others.
She will be hugely missed by her friends and colleagues at Huntingdon Town Council, but her legacy will live on through the projects she was involved with. Members and Officers express their deepest sympathies to Trish's family at this extremely difficult time.
