Today it was announced that community campaigner and local resident Cliff Woodcraft is the Liberal Democrat candidate for an important council by-election in Fulwood Ward.

Cliff and Nick on the doorstep speaking to the local residents of Fulwood.

Cliff, aged 63, lives in Fulwood Ward and has a record of supporting local people. As a member of St Thomas Church he offers technical advice and support to several other churches across Sheffield. Cliff is also a volunteer driver with St Luke’s Lunches, who support elderly people in Lodge Moor.

The by-election is on Thursday May 2nd and is in Nick Clegg’s Sheffield Hallam consistency. It was caused by the sad death of local councillor Janice Sidebottom.

Cliff said:

“I knew Janice very well and I know how hard she worked for us all as part of the local Liberal Democrat team. I want to make sure her hard work continues.

“I’m a local person who has lived in Sheffield with my family since 1969, when I came here to study electrical engineering at Sheffield University. I have raised all three of my children here and I am proud to call this part of Sheffield my home. I would be delighted to represent our area on the Council.”

Nick said:

“Cliff is a credit to his local community and he will make an outstanding local councillor for Fulwood, where he has lived for many years.

“The Lib Dems have a strong record of fighting for Fulwood over the last twenty years. I’m certain that Cliff would ensure this action continues, which is more important than ever when we have a Labour Council wasting millions in the Town Hall at the expense of local services.”
