Langworthy by-election: thank you for your support!

A huge thank you to all the voters in Langworthy, Pendleton, and Seedley, who braved the cold and rain to vote for James Mount in today's Langworthy by-election. We’re really pleased to have almost tripled the Conservative vote share compared to the last election, and to have climbed from fourth place to second place.

Congratulations to Cllr Wilson Nkurunziza on his victory. Our thoughts today are also with the family and friends of Paul Longshaw whose untimely passing led to a by-election that we all wish had not been needed.
