A BIG well done to ALL our candidates for these results, and commiserations to David Owen for what was a well run and close campaign, but sadly not giving the winning result.
Thank you to all campaign volunteer helpers, and a very special thank you to all voters who posted their postal vote in good time or turned out to place their X in the Conservative candidates box yesterday.
