Gilesgate Byelection

As mentioned earlier here are the figures from last nights by election in Gilesgate, Hexham: Lib Dem: 43 votes, 13.3% Cons: 132 votes 40.8% Inp: 56 votes   17.3% Lab: 92 votes 28.5%   Total votes cast were 323, which represents a very healthy 38.73% turnout. All three main parties put a fair amount of work in, for the Lib Dems to go from 2nd to 4th must be a real hammer blow. Well done to our candidate Trevor Cesseford and to Terry, Nick and all the Hexham team who helped make this a win for us.
