Yeovil Liberal Democrats have held their first successful Advice Centre this Saturday in the town. Councillors Jane Lock, Jo Roundell Greene and Tony Lock were on hand to help local residents with a range of topics from housing to highways and will work hard to resolve the issues raised.
There will be open advice centres every Saturday morning from 10 to 12 at the 5 Church Street office with your elected councillors and volunteers ready to listen to your problems and respond. The new Tory MP has not been prepared to run regular open advice centres anywhere in the Constituency and local Liberal Democrats are determined to continue to provide this essential service.
Cllr Jo Roundell Greene said:
"People in Yeovil are used to an extremely high level of service from their MP, both Paddy Ashdown and David Laws worked so hard representing everyone in the Constituency for over 30 years and we are not prepared to see that disappear.”
Liberal Democrat Councillors were also in Middle Street talking to local residents, Cllr Sam Crabb was there and commented:
"It is great to be out in the community reminding people that if they need help or advice we are here, we have had a good response and lots of support, clearly our continued presence has been well received everyone should be able to access those they have elected. “
“Unfortunately our new MP seems willing to attend the occasional business breakfast but not much else."
The Liberal Democrats will be running regular open Advice Centres in Yeovil, Crewkerne, Chard and Ilminster, with others held even more locally in villages and towns where possible.
