She will now be the county councillor for our area for the next 4 years. Click here to see details of Sarah’s County ward/division.  I remain your district councillor.

Nationally, for Lib Dems,  results were a mixed picture. The headline don’t show the many council seats where the Lib Dems increased their share of the vote coming a good second place. There were also some stunning results for the Lib Dems in places like St Albans. In Eatbourne the Lib Dems won all 6 county seats. Overall the Tories gained from the demise of UKIP and the collapse of the Labour vote. Lib Dems increase their share of the vote by 7% to 18%. With proportional representation the actual council seats would be very different from those declared on Friday 5th May 2017!
