Yeovil Liberal Democrats

Always working hard for you


Five years ago many of us were just taking in the shocking news of the passing of Paddy Ashdown on the 22nd December 2018.

A larger than life hardworking local MP that many miss to this day and many still talk about on the doorstep.

We have heard so many stories of his daring-do over the years here in Yeovil. Lots of people still remember his time at Westlands, his boundless enthusiasm and dedication to the constituency.

Some have told us how he personally helped them in times of trouble and remember his presence in and around the towns and villages of the area. Others have told us how, thanks to him, they were encouraged to stand up and join with us to demand better for our constituency.

We often wonder what his thoughts would be about today's political climate, here and abroad.

We miss him dearly and our thoughts are with Jane and Paddy's family at this time.

If you want to see another MP for Yeovil like Paddy and David who followed him, see below on how you can support Adam Dance, our candidate for the next General Election

Adam is already a hardworking and dedicated member of the community. Through his work on Parish, District and County Councils and now Somerset Council, he has a proven track record of serving his community and delivering for them.

But, don't take our word for it. You can see for yourself how Adam has gone from strength to strength in supporting the people he represents and helping them when he can.

Born in Yeovil, he grew up in this area of South Somerset, went to school and college here and has worked here all his life.
