Whether in administration or opposition we want to hear about the difference you have made.

  • Opposition Group of the Year – Opposition groups play a vital role holding other party administrations to account, providing a clear Liberal alternative for their community and also doing amazing things at ward level. We want to hear you proudest achievements in opposition this year.
