Oxfordshire Liberal Democrats

South East Oxfordshire Liberal Democrats

South East Oxfordshire Liberal Democrats (SEOLD)

With membership at record levels, the Lib Dems in South and East Oxfordshire are challenging the ruling Conservatives across the whole area. Two recent elections resulted in huge wins with 57% of the vote in Benson and Crowmarsh and 61% across the whole of the Wheatley county division (including Horspath, Beckley and Tiddington). Join us and help to give the Lib Dems a stronger voice in South & East Oxfordshire.

Local party members elect an executive committee each year to organise activities and election campaigns within the local area.  If you would like to know more about us or would like to offer to help please contact George Levy, email: mg.levy@ntlworld.com

Laura Coyle, Parliamentary Candidate for the Henley Constituency

Laura Coyle

Laura has lived near Goring for eight years with her husband Ray and six year old son who attends the local school. Laura also has two teenaged stepchildren.

It was as a Lib Dem councillor in London that Laura started to fight for the homeless and those who are living in substandard and insecure housing. Laura now works as a housing solicitor in Oxford providing advice and legal representation to tenants and homeless people, primarily through legal aid. Laura is also a director of a small almshouse charity.

Laura believes that access to good quality housing is fundamental to social justice and human dignity.

Laura campaigned for Remain in 2016 and has continued to campaign against Brexit ever since. She wants to give the people of Henley the chance to vote for someone who believes that the UK, and the world, will be a better, greener, safer place if the UK remains at the heart of Europe.
