A sincere thank you to those one million Liberal Democrat voters around the country for staying calm and loyal to staying with Europe.
Congratulations to Catherine Bearder, MEP for the South East. She worked extremely hard, investing her own time, energy and money into caring for our region.
Worthing has benefited from financial support from Europe and we will need sensible and calm people fighting for us in Worthing, from whichever party we support.
Well done to our popular current mayor, councillor Bob Smytherman, who held his seat in Tarring thanks to the continued loyal support from the residents who voted.
Heartfelt commiserations to all our candidates who were unsuccessful this time.
Our thanks must also go to our outgoing councillors, former mayor, Christine Brown, Dee Jones, Alan Rice and David Chapman who have given Worthing over 38 years good service.
Our sincere thanks to all Liberal voters; our Worthing Group will continue serve, support and promote equality for our community.
If you want to talk to us, if you need help, you can still contact us via our surgeries, especially at the West Worthing Baptist Church, South Street in Tarring, every Saturday 11am – noon.
Councillor Hazel Thorpe
