Sir Ed Davey visited Watford to help show support to the local Liberal Democrat election campaign as well as visiting the BRE Centre.
The former Energy Secretary joined Deputy Mayor of Watford, councillor Karen Collett and Lib Dem Parliamentary candidate councillor Ian Stotesbury, to find out more about what the centre does.
This included visiting it’s new ‘zero bills home’, designed to be so energy efficient that it would cost nothing to run and it’s Dementia House, which was specially designed for someone living with dementia and their carer.
Sir Ed then joined activists to help knock on doors in Watford to support the local Liberal Democrat campaign ahead of May’s election.
Cllr Ian Stotesbury, said: “It was great to be joined by Sir Ed in Watford and be shown some of the ground-breaking projects being put together at the BRE Centre just on our doorstep.
“Making Watford and Three Rivers a greener place to live is something our Mayor and our Lib Dem run councils have already started to do.
“In Watford, we are introducing more electric vehicle charging points, a new bus service, a bike hire scheme, practical things to make a difference to congestion and to our footprint.”
Liberal Democrat MP for Kingston and Surbiton, Sir Ed Davey, said: “It was great to visit the BRE Centre and help the Lib Dem team in their campaign to keep Watford moving forwards.
“It’s clear that Peter Taylor and the Lib Dem team are working hard to deliver good quality services for residents and they’re great example of a well-run Lib Dem council.”
