- Shropshire Councillor and Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate for Ludlow Heather Kidd. Heather praised the work of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, but said Shropshire Council and Severn Trent Water failed to help the most vulnerable during floods.
Heather said “I spent most of Saturday morning trying to get some assistance for vulnerable residents in my ward only to repeatedly hit a brick wall.”
Liberal Democrat Charlotte Barnes said the staff could work out of Shirehall.
Mrs Barnes said Shirehall had plenty of room for extra staff.
“We are working really hard to make all these savings, cuts people are finding really difficult to bear, and yet we are giving council money away when we have buildings we could house these people in,” she said.
Well said Charlotte! It really is absurd to waste hard earned public money on office space when you already have space to accommodate them.
Yesterday evening Ludlow Constituency Lib Dems hosted a thank you event for supporters and new members #libdempint #libdemfightback
