ALDC entering the mainstream

After many years, the office of the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors (ALDC, formerly ALC) is moving from Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. It's an area I associate with non-conformity and imaginative local ventures. Indeed, the community spirit is very strong as that web-site shows.

Now the ALDC HQ is to be in Manchester, a city with a great Liberal tradition. It may not have completely abandoned its roots in community politics by moving to London, but ALDC is now much closer to the new home of the BBC. Expect more frequent telly appearances by Tim Pickstone after May this year.
