Wokingham Liberal Democrats celebrate election success
Wokingham Liberal Democrats are celebrating their success in last week’s local elections. Not only did they successfully win the three seats they were defending, but they also won an extra Borough Council seat from the Conservatives in Loddon. Borough-
wide, the Liberal Democrat share of the vote increased by nearly 5 per cent, whereas the Conservatives share of the vote fell by almost 9 per cent.
Cllr Sue Smith, who won the Loddon seat, said: ‘I am very pleased to have won, and thank the people of Loddon for voting for me. I am looking forward to working for the Loddon and Woodley area and my first objective will be to get a fair deal for local residents on the way the developers’ contributions for Sandford Farm are to be used.’
