Lucy Hurds
Hereford and South Herefordshire

Having grown up in the County and having brought up her family locally, Lucy understands the issues that affect the area and has a determination to be the strong local voice for Herefordshire. Lucy was the 2010 Parliamentary Candidate in the neighbouring seat of North Herefordshire achieving a 6.9% swing from the Conservatives.

An experienced, local, hardworking campaigner, Lucy has the drive and ability to lead a winning campaign for Hereford & South Herefordshire. She is Secretary for West Midlands Liberal Democrat Regional Executive Committee and Chair of Fundraising for the West Midlands.

Her non political cv includes Manageress of Newsagents, Manager at Sun Valley Foods, PR and Academic training programme co-ordinator for a local Educational charity and 18 years Self Employed as a Small Business Consultant. Lucy has been working to set up a project with Herefordshire Council, the local Colleges, Business representatives and the Voluntary sector to offer support and work prospects of the unemployed graduates in the County.

Lucy also ran a successful campaign called “Hands UP for Herefordshire”. While the previous government reviewed education provision, Herefordshire’s campaign for fairer school funding held a County wide day of action. Campaign organiser Lucy Hurds and her teams of volunteers were joined by local politicians including the then MP for Hereford, Paul Keetch.

‘Hands Up for Herefordshire’ Day saw displays set up in Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Bromyard and Kington. Hands decorated by children of the County were brought together and assembled by volunteers drawn from community groups such as Hereford’s Sea Cadets, residents of Bromyard, Youth Action Team and V-involved volunteers. Individual hand prints to represent every pupil in the county were included in the final displays and represented over 23,000 children who were being short-changed by the grant given by the then Labour Central Government to the County’s education system.
