Building Liberal Communities

Lib Dem Voice went to the combined ALDC and LGA conference yesterday – and had a marvellous time. It’s a shame the event seems to have gone largely unremarked on the blogs. Maybe our councillor corps are still licking their nibs whilst deciding what to type.

So you can judge for yourself what a time was had by all, LDV is bringing you three podcasts of the event, recorded from the floor in the large hall where the plenary sessions where held. Because of the day’s diary, with many different events scheduled at the same time as the only way to fit it all in, this might even be the first time the attendees heard the keynote speakers.

First thing, we had Cllr Sarah Boad opening conference and showing us a film about the Lib Dem Council Group of the Year awards held annually at conference (full results of the award here). The morning session continued with speeches from Cllr Paul Tilsley, Andrew Stunnell MP, Baroness Ros Scott and party president Simon Hughes MP.

The second instalment will follow tomorrow.
