Tim Farron MP, one of the two contenders for the Leadership of the Liberal Democrats, met local party members at Poole Court this week for a no-holds-barred question and answer session.
He answered a wide range of questions from the crowded meeting, ranging from the economy and defence to how to rebuild the Lib Dems after the disappointing result at the General Election.
The other leadership contender is Norman Lamb MP, who visited Yate in February. The result of the election will be announced on 16 July.
In line with the national trend, local membership of the Liberal Democrats has risen considerably since the General Election.
