Good news from the election front.
Peter Christie was once again top of the poll in Bideford North.
Peter Hames delighted us by winning in Appledore, well deserved after many years of hard work on Northam Town Council.
Of our remaining five Green Party candidates, four were runners up and our fifth was not at the bottom of the poll. As Cathrine stood down this time after six years on Torridge and with a very high profile in Torrington, we did not expect to win the seat again but Keith put in a very respectable showing.
We were sorry not to see Mireille elected in Hartland but she came close behind those elected and well ahead of the other unsuccessful candidates so we now have four Target seats for next time.
Thank you to everyone who helped with leafletting and/or putting up a poster. These things all help.
