Welcome to the website of Carlisle Lib Dems

Carlisle Lib Dems are pleased to serve the approximately 107,000 residents of the Great Border City, Carlisle via our Dalston City Council member, Trevor Alison.

As no party won overall control of Cumbria County Council in the last elections which took place in 2017 The Liberal Democrats formed an alliance with Labour. We have 16 members representing areas across Cumbria on Cumbria County Council.

We are delighted to have the candidacy of Julia Aglionby, a Chartered Surveyor and Agricultural Valuer - consultant to H&H Land and Property and the Foundation for Common Land in the coming General Election.

The people of the UK and Carlisle face an uncertain future thanks to Brexit. The Lib Dems nationally and in Carlisle are united in our belief that people deserve better than this.

Carlisle should not have to suffer the chaos that has been brought upon us all by the Conservative Party and their "do or die" brexit and policies that benefit the few, nor should we endure the week opposition and untested, reckless policies of the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn.

When the election comes vote for Julia Aglionby to represent the interests of all Carlisle residents in Westminster.
