WELCOME TO THE INDEPENDENTS TEAM

It’s time to put Lincolnshire First!

Lincolnshire Independents Lincolnshire First (LILF) for the purposes of various Acts of Parliament and in particular those relating to financial regulation and accountability we are required to be a registered political party. However, members retain their freedom and respected right to be independent in their views and aspirations and in particular exercising their vote. Members support each other where they can, and no party-political whipping system is in place or allowed.

Members remain Independent, but not isolated. Independents work together and remain free to think, speak and vote for the communities we serve.

Michael Overton
Michael OvertonHeckington Rural
I worked in business development in London and Dubai for two years, then decided to change for a more value-driven career. After a masters in Yellowstone National Park, I now work for the Woodland Trust in Grantham. My job means I need to cover a wide area to both visit the woodlands and to promote them. I am not a “politician”, but I want to see local services run for the good of residents and the environment in which we live, focused on what’s needed, without the big party-politics!
