Focus Newsletters

Liberal Democrat councillors and campaigners work with local communities and keep in touch all year round through Focus newsletters in different parts of Slough.

The Focus newsletters aim to let residents know what is going on in their area and how they might be able to work with the local Lib Dems to campaign for improved services in their communities. Focus newsletters also let residents know ways in which they can get in contact with the Lib Dem team, or directly contact the Council and other bodies over issues in their area.

Over the years a wide range of Lib Dem councillors and campaigners have led Focus campaigns in different parts of Slough. They include: John Edwards, Sonja Jenkins, Duncan Buchanan and Robert Plimmer in Foxborough ward; Rashad Butt (Mayor of Slough, 2007-8), Duncan Buchanan and David Bridge in Stoke ward; and Robert Plimmer, Khaalid Malik and Josephine Hanney in Cippenham.
