Although Ashby and Garendon are separate wards on the west and north west of Loughborough for election purposes, we meet as one to support each other as there are few active members in Ashby Ward and the wards are adjacent. In doing so we are able to support Julie Bradshaw, Borough Councillor for Ashby Ward and Max Hunt, County Councillor for Loughborough North West which is made up of Ashby and Garendon Wards.
We have around fifty LP members and hold regular meetings in The Hut Community Centre on Old Ashby Rd which are regularly attended by both Julie and Max, who are able to report on both Borough and County activities and issues. We also include discussion about broader local and national issues at our meetings. Steve Hughes is our current chair and also attends GC meetings and is a member of the constituency campaign committee.
