Congratulations to all our Labour candidates who stood in the local elections. An excellent result (and a great excuse to repost my favourite picture of the campaign: Amelia Rout, Elizabeth and Michael Shenton, Rob Wallace and Gareth Snell)
Particular congratulations to those that retained or won their council seat:
Ann Beech for Audley and Bignall End
Sandra Hambleton for Bradwell
Sylvia Dymond for Butt Lane
Sandra Simpson for Chesterton
John Williams for Cross Heath
Tony Kearon for Keele
Margaret Astle for Kidsgrove
Tony Eagles for Knutton and Silverdale
Amelia Rout for Silverdale and Parksite
David Allport for Talke
Sarah Pickup for Ravenscliffe
Commiserations in particular to Michael Shenton who so nearly won Clayton from the Conservatives, and to Ruth Wright who frustratingly missing out by just 13 votes for Wolstanton.
All will continue to work hard to keep Newcastle such a great place to live, work and play.
