    Yes, it's frustrating that different councils have different rules but that's in large part due to having to arrange external contracts at different times.

    You need to rinse dirty packaging, squash plastic bottles and, in Chelmsford at least, put the lids back on.

    Since Jo became our party's new leader on Monday night, we've had another membership surge. There are now another 5,000 Liberal Democrat members and supporters - from one newbie to another, welcome!

    When I joined I was absolutely clear - there's only room in UK politics for one strong, centre-ground, pro-EU movement. That movement is the Liberal Democrats. And I've been blown away by how warm a welcome I've received - I hope you'll feel just as much at home as I do!

    Chelmsford City Council is determined to go green and deliver on its pledge of 16 July 2019 to be carbon neutral by 2030. The Lib Dem led Council has just rolled out battery powered hedge trimmers and electric parks vehicles.

    Cllr. Jude Deakin and parks staff launched the new, electric equipment for our parks this week. See this video:

    Thank you all so much.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    And as the first woman to lead our party.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    I joined this party when I was 17. And over the last twenty-two years, through all the ups and downs, the Liberal Democrats have felt like a family to me.

    Stephen Robinson (Liberal Democrat, Leader of Chelmsford City Council) was asked to write for the Essex Chronicle about why libraries are vital.

    Libraries that evolve to meet changing needs are a vital part of a strong community. Libraries continue to be vital sources of information, and their staff retain a crucial role in helping everyone navigate the bewildering array of information sources. Unlike Google, libraries don't set out to make a profit out of you, and they are there to serve everyone.
