This morning, a joint message of support and guidance from all of Cambridge's MPs, city councillors and county councillors was published. It outlines the spirit of cooperation that all political representatives across Cambridge have agreed to take on as we support our friends and neighbours and tackle the Coronavirus.

Market Liberal Democrats are keen to help the community in any way possible as the country deals with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Responding to the Government’s announcement this afternoon that the elections on May 7th will be postponed for a year, Cllr Tim Bick Leader of the Lib Dems on Cambridge City Council said:
“This seems to us the right decision. It's good that it has been decided at this stage before significant expense was incurred for the administration of the elections. It is a little surprising that the postponement is for as long as 12 months, but no doubt the logic for this will emerge.
The result of the national count of rough sleeping published today shows it increased in Cambridge for the second year running.

Local Market Ward councillors, Katie Porrer, Tim Bick and Anthony Martinelli recently put forward a bid for "succession tree planting" on Parker's Piece, as part of their budget amendment to Council. The plan would have seen funding allocated to ensure that semi-mature trees are in place at the Piece's perimeter before older trees die and that consideration would be given to planting extra trees where appropriate. Cllr Martinelli and Cllr Porrer had attended a recent community meeting about trees on the Piece, where it was clear that there was considerable support for proper planning for replacement trees and for investigating means of improving biodiversity, whilst protecting the iconic character of the area and its use for recreation and sport.
Liberal Democrat councillors have offered an amendment to the City Council’s annual budget which would see the council establish the role of Civic Beekeeper and the installation of beehives on top of the Cambridge Guildhall and other civic buildings.
