Cllr. Shaffaq Mohammed will continue as Leader of the Council group and Cllr. Penny Baker remains deputy Leader.
Shaffaq Mohammed said
“I am delighted to be joined by a dynamic team of hard working Councillors who will help me hold the complacent Labour Council to account over important issues that matter to the people of Sheffield, such as trees, libraries and care homes.
“Just as the the Liberal Democrats are the real opposition to the Conservative Government nationally, we are the opposition to Labour in Sheffield.
“Just last week the by-election in Southey, where we came a good second and achieved a 17% swing, shows that the only Liberal Democrats can challenge Labour in Sheffield.”
