I know some of you will have followed the election result as it unfolded – it was quite a day. We were behind the Conservatives in numbers of seats for a little while,
then drew ahead, then by midday it was clear we would be into no-overall-control territory, and after a bit we just won all the seats from then on. It was amazing. It was wonderful seeing 20 new LibDem councillors elected, some of whom were really not expecting to win, but all of whom had worked really hard in their villages to get to know everybody.
We have huge talent in our new councillors, including Judith of course, and we now have the opportunity to run the council, which is very exciting. We also have 10 returning councillors, including Anna and me.
We want to thank all of you who have helped us with delivering, having a stakeboard in your hedge or telling and knocking up for us. It’s been a great result for the LibDems, and I hope everyone who voted for us feels a part of that!
Here are the photos Chris Thomas took for us at the Count.
