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.
