Following our extensive canvassing and research we know now that this election is on a knife edge and too close to call so every single vote will count!
I know from meeting residents that many Labour and Green voters are supporting me to win this time to beat the unknown Conservative candidate. We all know the Conservatives only appear at election time and promise everything but always fail to deliver.
I live in the heart of the LINDLEY ward, and I work hard to make our area CLEANER with regular litter picks, I have setup and supported litter picking groups.
I and the Liberal Democrat team are working hard make our area GREENER with EV charging points, Air Quality Monitors, promoting Active Travel, Anti-idling & Better Recycling campaigns.
I work hard to make our area SAFER by working closely with the Neighbourhood Policing Team, Community Safety to tackle ASB and supporting Community Groups.
I work hard and keep in touch all year round, fighting for Cleaner, Greener, Safer Communities and always putting people before politics.
Only the Lib Dems can beat the Conservatives here, Labour always come in a distant third. The Greens barely register here.
Don’t let the Tories take you for granted. Let’s send them a message that they can’t ignore.
What do you think people need from their local councillor? Is it someone who will be a strong voice in the Town Hall? Is it someone who will listen to local people and understand their concerns? Is it someone who loves living here and wants to make our area the best it can be?
To me, these are some of the most important things a local councillor can do. Your voice matters, and I want to make sure it won’t be ignored.
I listen to, and work with, local people to make a difference. For too long, the Conservatives have taken you for granted. They have become involved in sleaze scandals, the Tories partied while people died, let developers build on our precious green spaces, and ignored traffic problems which blight our neighbourhoods. An now the Tory cost of living crisis…
This year’s election will be so close between myself and the unknown Conservative candidate, so every vote will count.
Don’t let the Tories take you for granted. Let’s send them a message that they can’t ignore. Vote Cahal Burke – Lib Dem on May 5th.

Kirklees Council annual meeting at Huddersfield Town Hall today. Different in many ways now, but mainly because we were without our former ward colleague Richard Eastwood, but we will carry on working hard & standing up for all of our residents & communities at the Town Hall. #Lindley #LibDems

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust are proposing changes at hospitals in Huddersfield and Calderdale. We want to keep all of our services at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and we want to know your views on the proposals.
We need a new car park in Lindley to help our local shops and help with congestion at school time.The former Eastlawns site (Thorncliffe Street) has been empty for many years after the Council sold it.
We your Councillors, Cllr Burke, Cllr Eastwood & Cllr Smith are campaigning to get the Council to buy back this land for a much needed car park in Lindley.
Lindley Councillors, Cllr Burke, Cllr Eastwood & Cllr Smith have been volunteering at Cathedral House supporting the NHS with the Covid-19 vaccination process.
At the moment, GPs are offering vaccinations to people aged 80 and over and care home residents and will then move to other age groups in descending order.
Practices are busy contacting eligible patients to make appointments for their first vaccination as supplies are made available to them but it is likely take several weeks to cover everyone in these first groups.GPs, nurses, pharmacists and countless other staff, partners and volunteers are working around the clock to provide vaccinations. We know people are eager get protected and may be concerned if they are in one of the priority cohorts and have not been contacted yet.
However, we would like to reassure them that they will be contacted over the next few weeks.Services are extremely busy at the moment and we would ask people to help the NHS at this very difficult time by not contacting their local GP or other NHS services about getting a vaccination.
We are here to try and resolve as many issues, concerns and challenges as we can and help bring the community together to support each other.
We have had a fantastic response from local businesses and individuals to our appeal and we are looking to establish a permanent FoodBank in the Lindley ward to serve our communities in Birchencliffe, Birkby, Lindley, Marsh, Mount, Oakes, Quarmby & Salendine Nook.
If you are a local business you can assist by becoming a drop off point or donate food/toiletries. Residents can assist by donating food/toiletries and identifying families/individuals in need.
Please see the Lindley Community Group website for a list of items that are currently needed. www.lindleygroup.org.uk
Please contact us if you can help and support.
