Success for the Lib Dems in the local elections

May 3, 2019 9:56 PM


Tewkesbury Lib Dems are delighted that they have gained 6 seats: 5 from the Tories and one from an independent. The total number of councillors is therefore 8, with 5 from Churchdown, 2 from Bishop's Cleeve and one from Innsworth. We also increased our vote across the Borough.

In addition in the Churchdown by-election for the County Council seat Ben Evans romped home with a tremendous 1405 votes nearly 600 ahead of his nearest rival.

Do join us to build on our success!!
