Great news. One of our long standing members - Akbar Ali MBE - has been up on the platform at conference to get a long service award from Party President Simon Hughes MP. Really good to see Akbar honoured this way. He is a member in Cressington ward, and Garston and Halewood Constituency - so I know him well.
Now if we are to do the double, we need Ken McKelvie to get a President's award at the regional conference next week - I nominated Ken after overcoming his modesty. Ken is another long standing member - also Cressington ward - who needs to have his work recognised.
