Welcome to our web site!

We are a group of people fighting for liberal values in Haltemprice and Howden and as part of a broad, tolerant and united movement across the United Kingdom.

As you know there is a General Election campaign underway and all the signs are that it could be a decisive one to set the course of Britain for decades to come.


The team in Cottingham


The Liberal Democrats have thought hard about what the people of Haltemprice and Howden might need and aspire to. Our councillors on the East Riding of Yorkshire County Council work hard to improve the lives of everyone in the community. Our vision is an exciting and inclusive one, where people are prosperous, healthy and secure through a successful local economy, good local services and a caring ethos throughout everything we do. Haltemprice and Howden is already a great place to live - we want to make it even better!


A lot of what happens in Haltemprice and Howden depends on the state of the country as a whole and on the decisions taken by the central government in London. Here is how we think we can help:

Brexit will cost the UK £70 billion


Unlike Labour, the Liberal Democrats do not depend on the Trades Unions for our funding and decision making. Unlike the Conservatives, we do not depend on big business and murky international donors. We are free to make decisions based not on ideology or the interest groups behind us, but on what we and you think is best for everyone. We are an inclusive party not drawn overwhelmingly from one section of society and this enables us to take a consensual best-interest view of the issues and challenges which face us all. Divisive politics based on cultural and class conflict are not part of our DNA, nor do they inform our decision making.

If you would like to join the Liberal Democrats or simply help us out during the General Election campaign get in touch here. You will be more than welcome!
