Mark explained, "Liberal Democrats have always believed that Britain should be outward facing, collaborating with other countries to tackle global challenges. Our membership of the European Union allows us to do that.
Local Liberal Democrats are leading the campaign to save the Star Youth Club with a petition that every local resident can support.
Ashton Lib Dem campaigner, Mark Jewell, said, "The Star Youth Club is the only Youth Club in the West of Preston. With such severe cuts proposed by County Hall even the Youth zone proposed at the bus station must now be in doubt."
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has written to Theresa May to urge her to address the humanitarian crisis in Calais at her upcoming meeting with French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.
Tim Farron visited the Jules Ferry migrant support centre in Calais earlier this month to meet with refugees and organisations working in the area. He is calling for there to be more support and funding to tackle the lack of water, sanitation and medical supplies in the area.
Local campaigner, Mark Jewell welcomed the announcement that Tim Farron, has been elected as the new leader of the Liberal Democrats.
Mark highlighted, "Tim was brought up in Preston and I'm delighted he will lead our fightback".
Tim Farron said that under his leadership, the party would oppose the cuts to tax credits and other benefits in the Conservative's budget and push for greater spending on infrastructure such as transport and broadband.
