Bunbury By-Election 22nd March 2018
A BIG THANKS TO BUNBURY from Mark Ireland-Jones
‘I would like to thank everyone that helped in anyway in the by-election, your time and efforts were very much appreciated, it was my first foray into elections, I enjoyed it, I am much fitter having walked miles and learnt a huge amount!
Although we didn’t win we took a good share of the vote and both Labour and the Greens had reduced shares compared to last time so we have re-established ourselves as the main challengers to the Conservatives.Our campaign was well received giving us a good base for May 2019!
CON: 53.3% (-16.9)
LDEM: 27.5% (+27.5)
LAB: 14.3% (-3.4)
GRN: 4.8% (-7.2)
The Eddisbury & Weaver Vale team hit the Bunbury by-election campaign trail today, led by Mark Ireland-Jones.
Despite it being cold, wet and windy, we contacted many people most of whom were glad to see us and keen to raise varied issues including buses, potholes and our Beeston Castle and Tarporley Station Campaign (petition HERE)
We all defrosted over coffee afterwards at the excellent Tilly’s Cafe in the heart of the village.
If you would like to help at the next door knocking event, please contact Mark on 07810 637233.
Ian Priestner our 2017 GE Candidate in Eddisbury reports,
I am delighted to have been invited by Beeston Parish Council to discuss plans and prospects for the Tarporley Railway Station reopening campaign.
Beeston, alongside Tarporley itself, will benefit directly from reopening the station.
With plans for HS2 gathering steam, it is even more important to improve our local rail infrastructure, for too long neglected.
I will let you know how our discussions develop.
If you want to join me at the Parish Council on the evening of 7.30 pm on Tuesday 7th November 2017 at Peckforton & Beeston Village Room please do.
If you haven’t already please sign my petition
