Tim Farron is MP for Westmorland & Lonsdale.

Tim's win in 2005 ended a 95 year rule by the Tories, winning by 267 votes. In the 2010 general election Tim maintained his seat and achieved an 11.1% swing from the Conservatives.

He was leader of the Liberal Democrats from 2015-2017.

Tim lives in Milnthorpe, south Cumbria, with his wife Rosie, his daughters Isabella and Gracie and his sons Jude and Laurie.

Tim was elected as President of the Liberal Democrats in January 2011 by an all members ballot. He was re-elected in autumn 2012 and will continue for the full term, until handing over the role at the beginning of January 2015.

Tim has headed many local campaigns, fighting to protect and bring more services to Westmorland General Hospital, build more affordable homes for local families and bring more well paid jobs to the South Lakes. Tim is also a strong advocate for Cumbria's farmers, with the NFU describing him as "a true ally of farmers".

Since becoming an MP in 2005 Tim has held hundreds of advice surgeries all over Westmorland and Lonsdale, helping tens of thousands of constituents along the way. Everyone knows someone who has been helped by Tim! This culminates in his annual summer tours, when he visits rural villages and communities around South Lakeland, where surgeries wouldn't normally occur.

Tim's proudest local achievement is his successful campaign to bring a chemotherapy centre to Westmorland General, meaning cancer patients in the South Lakes no longer have to make travel long distances to Lancaster or Barrow for treatment.

Antoinette Sandbach is Liberal Democrat MP for Eddisbury

Antoinette Sandbach

Antoinette Sandbach was re-elected as MP for Eddisbury at the 2017 General Election.

Married to husband Matt, Antoinette has a daughter and a much loved black spaniel. Antoinette lives in the Constituency and following her election in 2015 set up a constituency office in Winsford. Antoinette has helped over 6000 constituents in the last two years and together with her team provides support to those who need help, often with complex issues which need to be addressed.

Antoinette has promoted Eddisbury outside the constituency highlighting the talent available in Eddisbury and opportunities for business locally. With the Northern Powerhouse providing opportunities for further jobs and growth locally Antoinette has been a champion for Eddisbury in Westminster and further afield.

Locally Antoinette has campaigned on a number of issues. Since her election in 2015 Antoinette has spoken strongly in support of fair funding for schools, helping to secure an increase in funding to both CWaC and Cheshire East in the 2016/17 financial year - which resulted in an increase in funding of over £9 million. Antoinette continues to campaign for fair funding for schools in Cheshire and has made strong representations in the recent consultation, as well as ensuring local headteachers could meet with the Minister to raise their concerns and highlight the impact on local schools of the proposed formula change.

A strong local voice for constituents, Antoinette has provided help and assistance to those affected by HS2 route changes and has campaigned for a rethink on the line of the route north of Crewe calling for the Government to look again and consider whether or not there may be a more cost effective alternative route.

Antoinette has been a powerful advocate for rural issues, speaking up for farmers on issues like the groceries code adjudicator, helping with SFP claims and highlighting the impact of low milk prices on local dairy farmers. She also has been campaigning for better broadband access for rural communities and encouraging action to be taken to tackle mobile "not spots".

Antoinette has come to national prominence as the Chair of the All Party Group on Baby loss which has highlighted the impact of stillbirth and child loss on parents, campaigning for better mental health support and improvements in maternity units to reduce mortality figures. As a result of working with Alder Hey Children's hospital she helped secure a £1.4 million grant towards their new counselling centre which supports those who suffer the loss of a child.

Antoinette has served on the Energy and Climate Change committee and latterly the Business Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee since her election in 2015.

In October 2019, Antoinette joined the Liberal Democrats.
