Will Forster is the Lib Dem County Councillor for Woking South and Group Leader of the Lib Dems on Surrey County Council.

Will grew up in Goldsworth Park and Horsell, where he attended local schools including Horsell Church of England Middle School, Woking High School and Woking College. Will lived in Westfield for many years and he now lives by Woking Park with his partner Hannah and their sausage dog Toffee.

Will was first elected to serve his local community as a Councillor in 2009. He is now in his fourth term as a County Councillor, having been re-elected with an increased majority in the May 2021 elections.

As well as leading the Lib Dem Group, Will is Vice Chairman of the Resources and Performance Select Committee, on the People, Performance and Development Committee and a member of the Woking Joint Committee.

Will is also a Woking Borough Councillor. In 2018 to 2019, he served as the Mayor of Woking, during which time Will strongly supported the Borough's voluntary sector and raised tens of thousands of pounds for his Mayoral Charity, the York Road Project, which helps local homeless people.

Will stood to be Woking's Lib Dem MP in the 2019 General Election. Although he did not get over the line in Woking, Will led the Lib Dems to the party's best result in a decade. He finished a strong second with 31% of the vote, increased the party's vote share by 13% and slashed the Conservative majority to around 9,000 votes.
