Ronnie Fearn – a Southport Councillor for 50 years

This month marks an amazing milestone in Southport's political history. In May 1963 a young Ronnie Fearn was first elected as a councillor on what was then the Southport County Borough Council. In those days the Liberals ran the council.

Ronnie Fearn has served Southport continuously as a councillor ever since. He has been Leader of the Group, Member of Parliament (twice), and he is now a member of the House of Lords.

Cllr Iain Brodie Browne, Leader of the Liberal Democrats on Sefton Council, said "By any measure Ronnie Fearn is the most successful Southport politician of his generation. He is well known as a champion of the town"

Meols Ward Liberal Democrats send our heartiest congratulations to Ronnie and all his team.
