Baroness takes to the streets of Winchelsea

January 17, 2010

Baroness Scott of Needham Market in the County of Suffolk, who has been the President of the Liberal Democrat Party since January 2009, spent time listening to voters concerns in Winchelsea on Friday last week.

The new year has seen the start of campaigning in earnest by the political parties, and Baroness Scott was in the area helping local Lib Dem candidate Nick Perry. She was also guest speaker at the party’s constituency dinner in St Leonards on Sea.

Baroness Scott said, “I have not been back to Winchelsea for a long time. We used to come to the area with my parents for holidays when we were younger. It is absolutely beautiful, and it was lovely to spend the afternoon talking to local people.”

The Liberal Party had strong links with the Non-Conformist movement, and Baroness Scott learnt that John Wesley gave his last open air sermon in Winchelsea in 1790.

Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hastings & Rye Nick Perry said,

“It was a pleasure to be able to show Ros around some of the constituency and bring back some of her memories of holidays here. We had a warm reception on the doorstep, and I think the people of Winchelsea were pleased to see politicians coming to listen to their views.

“There was a great deal of enthusiasm for our leadership team of Nick Clegg and Vince Cable. I think this enthusiasm will only increase as we get closer to the election and people hear more about Lib Dem policies”, said Nick.

The General Election must be held before 3 June this year.
