Your Crompton Liberal Democrat Councillors would like to say a massive thanks to our NHS, Care and Support staff, Key workers and the whole Community for stepping up in our time of need. We are far from out of the woods yet and it’s definitely not business as usual, but we have been inspired by the resilience of the community.
Despite the lockdown, work still carries on for your local Liberal Democrat Councillors Diane Williamson, Dave Murphy and Louie Hamblett.
Issues for the community have taken on a whole new dynamic.
As local Councillors, residents have contacted us with issues that are slightly more complex than normal.
We are telephoning residents to make sure they are safe and well and have supported local businesses who have contacted us about the business grant schemes.
