After a quiet couple of weeks, we’re very happy to see a new Liberal Democrat councillor taking a seat – this time from the Labour party.
Winsford Town Council is located in Cheshire, our first chance here in the North West to get stuck in! Chris Davies was among the visitors out campaigning for Bev Theron and his Wharton ward Focus team, and ALDC’s Manchester Phone Bank dedicated Thursday night’s session to helping get out the vote.
This takes our overall total to ten gains (across all types of council, and all elections) since May 8th. Net gains go up to +9, with our loss in Romsey in June remaining the only offset.
Well done to all!
