Help elect a hardworking local champion as the MP for Glastonbury and Somerton

by Glastonbury & Somerton Liberal Democrats in Glastonbury, Somerset, United Kingdom

Hello, I’m Sarah Dyke, and I’m standing to be elected as your MP in Glastonbury and Somerton.

Like you, I live here in the constituency. I come from a farming family and I can trace my roots back over 250 years in this area. I'm committed to demanding a fair deal for Somerset and, since being elected as the MP for Somerton and Frome in July 2023, I've fought to save community pharmacies, protected rural bus routes, and helped thousands of local people. In Parliament, I’ve asked the Prime Minister why new funding isn’t being made available for a train station for the Somerset Levels, and repeatedly called for better access for my constituents to GPs and dentists. I’ve also led parliamentary debates on food security and farming. As our next MP, I would continue to work tirelessly to represent our area. 

I’m sure that, like me, you’re tired of a squabbling, out-of-touch Conservative Party which has overseen a record increase in the cost of living and NHS waiting times. The Conservatives can rely on their wealthy donors for election funding, but I can’t.

Which is why I need your help. Running an election campaign is expensive: there are 70,000 constituents in the new Glastonbury and Somerton seat, spread across a large rural area.

If you believe that the Glastonbury and Somerton constituency deserves a politician who will stand up for Somerset, then please support my crowdfunder.

With your help, we can make politics work for everyone.

More about Sarah

She has plenty of experience in local politics, having served on South Somerset District Council before being elected to Somerset Council in 2022, where she was Lead Member for Environment. Sarah was selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the July 2023 parliamentary by-election in Somerton and Frome, and won an impressive 54.6% of the vote.
