Lib Dem councillors say they've been told it's 'inappropriate' for them to volunteer at the Rugby World Cup
Liberal Democrats councillors in Richmond say they’re being banned from volunteering at the Rugby World Cup.

Six Lib Dem councillors applied to give up their spare time to help during the tournament, which starts in Twickenham next month.

But they claim they’ve been told it would be inappropriate for them to do so, something Councillor Alexander Ehmann doesn’t understand.



Gillian Norton, Chief Executive of Richmond Council has given us this statement.

“The Visit Richmond volunteer scheme has been created to give local residents an opportunity to promote the borough to visitors during the Rugby World Cup.

“Councillors are not ‘banned’ from being volunteers. This particular scheme was never intended to include them and this should have been made clear before any applied. Elected members are the Council, and therefore technically the ‘employer’ of any volunteers. Being a volunteer and a councillor muddles roles. An apology has been issued to the councillors regarding this error.

“As elected members, I am sure that they will be out in the community during the Tournament, representing their local areas. This is important, so that residents can feed in their thoughts, feedback and concerns about any changes to match day plans.”
