    Manifesto Ideas Marketplace

    Good Liberal Democrats of Cambridge: we need your brains!

    After incredible local and international election results this year, we are getting ready here in Cambridge City to reclaim control of the Council in May 2020. To do this, we need 42 candidates, standing on a manifesto that is inspiring, visionary, and won't make the officers turn pale when it turns out we are actually going to deliver this for our city. 

    Can you help?

    Please do come along and share your experiences, expertise and interests at our Ideas Marketplace. This is the very first stage of the process, so all and any ideas are welcome on the table. 

    If you cannot attend, an online survey will follow after the forum which we will also circulate on the facebook groups and via email.
