Another Liberal Democrat election win

Congratulations to Gavin Chambers: the latest Liberal Democrat candidate to win an election in Epping Forest.

Gavin was elected to Buckhurst Hill Parish Council on Thursday following the sad death of Malcolm Woollard, who worked so hard over many years for the local community.

The result was convincing:

Lib Dem (Gavin Chambers) – 614 votes (63%)

Conservative – 312 (32%)

BNP – 56 (6%)

It represents something of a vote of confidence in the hard work of the Lib Dem team who run Buckhurst Hill parish council. The council has chalked up a number of achievements in recent years, including saving the old Roding Centre (now renamed the Woollard Centre) from being sold for housing redevelopment and delivering a new playground and ball court for local young people.

I know they have plenty of future plans too and will continue to campaign for the interests of their local residents.
