We were all delighted with Darryl's success on the 5th of May. Darryl has been a tireless campaigner for his ward and this success was long overdue. Darryl received an impressive 1098 votes putting him well clear of the Conservative incumbent, Jon Cloke who was seeking re-election.
Darryl will be an excellent local champion for the ward. On behalf of all in the party I want to wish Darryl all the best as he takes up this richly deserved position.
