Christmas present ideas from the LDV team and friends, days 6, 7 and 8

We’ve fallen a bit behind with our Christmas present ideas, so here we catch up with 3 ideas.

The first is from party president Tim Farron who wants us to look up. Literally. He suggests that a telescope would be an amazing gift because:

It opens up the awesomeness of everything.

Regular LDV contributor Alisdair Calder McGregor suggests this Doctor Who laden page. He says:

I don’t think I really have to explain why do I?

ALDC christmas pressieAnd co-editor Caron Lindsay has a more serious suggestion which she sees as an ideal gift for any party member who wants to become more involved in grassroots campaigning. Membership of ALDC.

The Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors and Campaigners provides essential, practical resources for every type of campaign. If you follow ALDC techniques, you are more likely to win. End of.

Their most recent issue of Local Campaigner has an article from Stephen Williams about what he’s doing in government and how his experience as a councillor both prepared him for being an MP and influences his thinking now.  Lib Dems in Wiltshire tell how they bucked the national trends last year and there’s advice from successful teams across the country about what works. The 2013 campaigner awards are really interesting because they give reasons why each one was awarded.

ALDC is the professional organisation for any Liberal Democrat campaigner, driving up skills and quality in our work.
