Since the polls closed on May 7th, 14,000 new members have flocked to join the Liberal Democrats. On the 21st of May the new local members were welcomed by Local Chair Ade Adeyemo and former MP for Solihull Lorely Burt.
It was a great evening, with discussions focusing on how the Liberal Democrats will continue to champion civil liberties and advance other liberal causes in the new parliament.
Local Chair Ade Adeyemo said
“It was great to see so many at the meeting and welcome all of the new members. I am looking forward to hearing their ideas about how the Liberal Democrats should move forward".
The local party will be holding regular meetings so please look out for details.
The Solihull and Meriden Liberal Democrats have enjoyed a 25% increase in membership.
