    Sevenoaks Liberal Democrats are holiding our first Liberal Pint event on Thursday 19 September and we would love you to attend!

    Liberal Pint is exactly what it sound like - an informal drink and chat among liberals - and many other local LibDem groups have found these a great way for members to keep in touch.

    It's about time we all got together!

    Please join us for our first ever Coffee Morning Fundraiser on Saturday, 21 September between 10am and 1pm. As this is a party fundraiser, we'll be asking for a donation of £3.50.

    There will be plenty of home-made treats and fresh coffee available, and it will be a great opportunity to meet other local Liberal Democrats.

    Lib Dems in Gravesham welcomes two of our SE Region MEPs to a Street Stall in Gravesend. Antony Hook and Judith Bunting both came to support our discussions with local people and meet our new PPCs for Gravesham and Dartford.

    Sevenoaks' Lib Dem Councillors have asked thousands of voters how they would start the journey to zero carbon - starting now. We know government is moving too slowly and will miss the targets it has set to avoid serious climate damage. So we need to make this happen locally.

    Here are ideas so far - Will you support them? What else will make a difference?

    People who have sexual identities other than heterosexual have been discriminated against throughout history. It is important, therefore, that children are taught about LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, etc.) rights in school, both to gain awareness and to help the situation improve.

    Your Council Tax bill which arrived in April repeats the story of above inflation increases. Up 5.4% this year - bringing the rise over five years to almost a quarter. Much higher than the 10% increase in most wages over the same period.

    More local services are now paid for through the regressive Council Tax system, which hits low income families harder. Less comes through central government from income tax, which is related to ability to pay.
