The Selby and Ainsty Liberal Democrats is a branch of the York Liberal Democrats. We are building support for the party in areas where we don’t currently have any councillors. We are always looking for new members, volunteers, and council candidates. We would love to hear from you whatever role you can play in helping us maintain and progress the Lib Dems in the Selby and Ainsty Constituency.
We are also working to build support in areas where we don’t currently have any councillors.
