Your Trumpington Lib Dem Team


Trumpington is Cambridge's largest ward in the south west of the city. It has several beautiful green spaces for recreation, exercise, bird watching or getting your children out to play. Trumpington has recently undergone several major housing developments, such as Trumpington Meadows and the Glebe Farm and Clay Farm Developments. Your Lib Dem Trumpington team is working hard to make Trumpington a great place to work and live for everyone.

Local politics is teamwork!

There are a number of ways you can get involved with your local community through the Lib Dems. Please contact us if you can spare the occasional hour delivering our leaflets.

Fighting Bike Theft

The Trumpington Team Helped Local Residents To Register Their Bikes

One stolen bike may not look like a big deal (if it's not yours), but thousands of stolen bikes are organised crime. As Trumpington resident James Hems writes in the Winter Edition of Camcycle Magazine (pages 30-33), approximately 9000 bikes are stolen in Cambridge every year - 25 bikes per day! This is four times the national average, and twice as many as in Oxford. Only about 5 % of bike theft victims are reunited with their bikes - but this number could be significantly higher if more people registered their bikes. Importantly, this could also lead the police to the gang leaders who organise bike theft on a grand scale. Knowing that bikes in a certain area are registered may also put thieves off in the first place.

The Trumpington team raised awareness of this issue and helped local Trumpington residents to register their bikes in an event at Trumpington Meadows on December 19th. The organisers Olaf Hauk and Philippa Slatter as well as their team members got their hands dirty and turned a number of bikes upside down in order to find their registration numbers. Many passers-by were given more information on why and how to register their bikes and were pointed to the useful tips in the Camcyle article mentioned above. If this becomes common practice in the community, then the message to bike thieves is very clear: There is nothing for you to do in Trumpington!
