    Local candidate Ruth Houghton stormed to victory on the 12th September, to hold the seat for the Liberal Democrats.

    "When Councillor Jonny Keeley decided to step down owing to family pressures- - full time work and 3 children - Ruth stepped into the breach and has worked tirelessly to win this election." Said Heather Kidd, neighbouring Councillor for Chirbury and Worthen. " We now have a complete local team again covering the whole of south west Shropshire from Worthen to Bishops Castle and Bucknell. She will make a fantastic and committed new councillor."

    Thank you all so much.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    And as the first woman to lead our party.

    I am delighted, honoured, absolutely over the moon to stand before you as the leader of the Liberal Democrats.

    I joined this party when I was 17. And over the last twenty-two years, through all the ups and downs, the Liberal Democrats have felt like a family to me.

    Ballots for our leadership election have now gone out. If you were a member by the 7th June, you get a say in deciding the next leader of our party.

    It's a really exciting time to be a Liberal Democrat - and we're extraordinarily lucky to have 2 solid candidates in Sir Ed Davey and Jo Swinson. Either would be a fabulous leader for our party.

    Residents and Councillors in the west of the County have expressed anger and concern at the news that South Shropshire Housing Association is selling off another property in Bucknell rather return it to the rental market.

    Shropshire Councillor for Clun, Nigel Hartin, said: " I am really concerned about the Housing Association's strategy in rural Shropshire. Over the last couple of years we have seen the housing association try to sell off houses in Lydham and St Catherine's flats in Clun. The Housing Association have also seriously let down local residents in regard to the four properties at Amblecote (between Betws y Crwyn and Anchor) where they have decided to auction the properties despite apparently agreeing with the parish to sell to local people.
