    A new, fast-testing centre has opened in Chelmsford for those who DO NOT have symptoms of Covid-19. The centre is at Central Baptist Church, Victoria Road South, Chelmsford, CM1 1LN - but you can only attend if you book.

    Details on how to access the site and nearby parking is available on booking. This is the seventh such centre in Essex and offer the new and fast Lateral Flow Tests to the wider population. The tests are ONLY for people for who DO NOT have symptoms and give results in around 30 minutes.

  • Test Track Trace
    Article: Jan 3, 2021

    Tracing systems led by our local councils have proved to be a huge success. 86 per cent of cases are closed and 93 per cent of contacts traced. This contrasts with the Government-run, centralised tracing system with a contact trace rate of nearer 60 per cent.

    Essex County Council launched a Covid-19 contact tracing service in June and works closely with partners in Chelmsford City and other borough / district councils in Essex.

  • Lib Dem Beliefs
    Article: Jan 1, 2021

    While sometimes it's difficult to know what you're actually going to get when you cast your vote, especially with independents many of whom were previously members of the discredited Conservative administration, when you vote for a Lib Dem candidate this is what you're going to get.

    We are here to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society. We want to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. In other words, we care about others and value freedoms (which is why we don't much like Brexit, because we lost the right to freely live and travel to 27 other countries amongst a lot of other things).That's all well and good we hear you say, but what does that actually mean for your local area? It means we make sure there's noone sleeping rough in Chelmsford (where we have a Lib Dem run council), we help residents choose cheaper and greener energy and commit to fairer and greener purchasing when we're in power.
