The Liberal Democrats have two new town councillors after stunning victories in the by-elections this Friday
Liberal Democrats won both by-elections on the town council showing that we continue to move forward in the area.
Clive Fletcher received over 78% of the vote to become councillor for Dyson Perrins while David Mead is now councillor for Chase ward after receiving 83% of the vote. A huge thank you to all who helped but a very big thank you has to go to Cllr Jack Satterthwaite who managed the campaign with clinical precision.
