We're facing unprecedented demands on our resilience as individuals and as a community during this Covid-19 pandemic. It's important that we all take sensible precautions for ourselves and that we help each other whenever we can.
There are over 1,000 Lib Dem supporters in the Bromley Borough and we're all willing to support each other and members of the wider community. So if you are self-isolating and need help with shopping, collecting post, prescriptions, a friendly phone call - or anything - email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 020 3371 1415. And don't worry - we won't mention politics!
We want everyone to stay safe so we have prepared these common sense guidelines for everyone volunteering or asking for help.
We're also reaching out to local food banks who may need extra support - we'll publish more information here in the next few days.
Communities and individuals across the country are joining the #viralkindness campaign - see this Guardian article for more information.
The Bromley Lib Dems visited the Chiselhurst Caves this March
Bromley Council voted to increase next year’s council tax by 3.9%, voted to increase staff wages by 2.5% and voted to give the leader of the council, Colin Smith, a 25% pay rise. This is a slap in the face for council staff whose pay, in real terms, has declined over the past 10 years and which for many is below the London Living Wage.
EU nationals are leaving Bromley in a stark reminder of the impact of Brexit. And this shift in demographics may have unintended consequences.
Bromley Council once again has offered empty words and played down its "commitment" to environmental issues- the Lib Dems report back from the council meeting.
