Welcome to the web site of David Chappell

Parliamentary Campaigner for Bury St Edmunds

Since the excellent result of the 2010 General Election for the Liberal Democrats in Bury St Edmunds David has been focussing on work, including being appointed as Senior Contract Administrator on the Kingdom Tower which, at 1018m high, is planned to be the tallest building in the world.

He is still active in supporting the Liberal Democrats, especially as 57 Lib Dem MPs have been able to implement 75% of their manifesto promises whereas over 250 Labour MPs have not had any of their manifesto policy implemented.

David took the Lib Dem vote from 6,000 to over 15,000 in Bury St Edmunds and he has continued supporting the local community when work has permitted.

David was confirmed as the Lib Dem candidate for Bury St Edmunds in 2015 on Friday 28th November with 92% of the local party vote!

    Dear Liz,

    We are writing to urge you to take action to end hair discrimination in schools, colleges and workplaces, and throughout society.

    People across this country have endured terrible hardships over the past six months: losing loved ones, losing livelihoods and isolating from friends and family.

    People are angry to see their hard work and sacrifices utterly wasted by the incompetence of Boris Johnson.

    What are we calling for?

    We want the Government to commit to three steps which will make a world of difference to struggling families and help end child hunger:

    2. Food vouchers for every one of those pupils in every school holiday
    3. Food vouchers for every one of those pupils during any period of lockdown

    This is an incredibly difficult time for people. Right across our country, coronavirus has caused enormous upheaval and uncertainty.

    Too many have lost loved ones. Too many have lost their livelihoods.

    In many ways this crisis has amplified pressures in our communities that have for too long been ignored. That must change.
