    I want to send my best wishes to Muslims in the UK and across the world as we welcome the Holy Month of Ramadan.

    Ramadan is a time of reflection, renewal and generosity. These are much needed in our communities, our politics and all our lives.

    A second year observing Ramadan with restrictions on meeting together will be difficult. Holding an iftar will be different, loved ones will be missed and celebrations will be muted.

    On behalf of her family, it is with great sadness that we announce that Shirley Williams, Baroness Williams of Crosby, died peacefully in the early hours of Monday April 12th.


    Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:

    This is heartbreaking for me and for our whole Liberal Democrat family.

    Shirley has been an inspiration to millions, a Liberal lion and a true trailblazer. I feel privileged to have known her, listened to her and worked with her. Like so many others, I will miss her terribly.

    Following the sad death of Prince Philip the councillors, candidates and members of High Peak Liberal Democrats send our condolences to the Queen and the Royal Family.
  • Article: Apr 9, 2021

    "Prince Philip dedicated his life to our country. We will always be grateful for his amazing service, not least the powerful legacy he leaves to millions of young people who have taken part in his unique Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

    "His quiet and steadfast counsel and support of The Queen, is perhaps his greatest if unquantifiable contribution to our nation's history.

    "At this sad time for millions, we should never forget Prince Philip was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. So our thoughts must be with the whole Royal Family, but in particular with The Queen at this difficult time."

    As the Black Lives Matter protests highlighted so powerfully, too many people's lives both in the UK and across the world are blighted by discrimination, inequality and injustice. It is unacceptable.

    There is still so much to do to tackle racial injustice in our country.

    Black and Asian children are more than twice as likely to grow up in persistent poverty as White children. Gypsy, Roma and Traveller, Black Caribbean and mixed-race children are significantly more likely to be excluded from school than other pupils.

    This motion called not just for support, but for acceptance for autistic people.

    This Autism Acceptance Month comes soon after a Young Liberals motion, Autism Support, was passed at Liberal Democrat conference.

    This motion called not just for support, but for acceptance for autistic people.

    Autistic people are more likely than the general population to have other learning difficulties, mental health illnesses and even physical disabilities.

    I am delighted to see that a "green light" has now been given to building a Police Response Hub somewhere in the High Peak area. This is exactly what is needed - a substantive police presence in North West Derbyshire. It is to be hoped that the plans can be approved, the funding put in place, and that real progress will be made as soon as is possible.
