Liberal Youth had a brilliant showing at the recent Feltham & Heston parliamentary by-election.
Young campaigners came from all over the country, including branch members from as far as Manchester and Durham, plus of course the national Liberal Youth exec.
Candidate Roger Crouch tweeted:
Although Labour held this safe-seat as expected, the Liberal Democrats held a respectable 3rd position, and collected considerable amounts of data for developing the seat in future.
