Wokingham Borough Council’s Liberal Democrat Group of Councillors is celebrating a Local Government Association award for Liberal Democrat ‘Opposition Group of the Year Joint Winner 2013’. It was presented to the group Leader Cllr Prue Bray at the Liberal Democrat Federal Conference in Brighton on 8th March by Nick Clegg.
Prue 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. “
