Wokingham Lib Dems 'Opposition Group of the Year'
March 14, 2013
Wokingham Liberal Democrats have been named Opposition Group of the year by the Local Government Association.
The borough’s Lib Dem leader Prue Bray was presented with the award for Liberal Democrat ‘Opposition Group of the Year Joint Winner 2013’, by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on Friday.
Councillor Bray said: “I am delighted that our work as an effective opposition group has been recognised.
“We have held the Conservatives to account over the problems with their new waste collection service, forced the Conservatives into a U-turn over plans to hand the library service over to a private company and campaigned against the secrecy and risk involved in the three council-owned limited companies set up by the Conservatives – and we will continue to work just as hard in the coming year.”
