Surrey Docks Liberal Democrats campaign on the side of local residents to make sure all new developments protect green spaces and provide affordable homes. They are also fighting to speed up the woeful broadband speeds in the area.
Our shopfront in The Blue has now closed, but there is a Liberal Democrat councillor advice surgery every Saturday morning opposite the library (10.30 to 11.30am) at 53 Rock Grove Way, SE16 3UQ.
We will always fight your corner.

James Okosun is a local campaigner who was elected as a Liberal Democrat councillor in the local elections in May 2014.
He has worked hard with fellow ward councillor David Hubber on important local issues - campaigning for young people, to ease congestion on Lower Road and to ensure that the Labour council keeps our streets clean.
James, 24, is a newly qualified social worker and lives just off Lower Road. He says: "I've always supported the Lib Dems in their work to keep our area low-rise, clean and green and want to represent and help residents. I’m on the side of local people and I will fight hard along with David to improve our area and make sure the Labour council doesn’t neglect Surrey Quays."
