BACK IN ACTION - HOPING TO SERVE THE RAINHILL PEOPLE BETTER THAN EVERIt's quite a while since this blog was updated, we have all been busy campaigning over the weeks before the elections to maintain our position in Rainhill as the electorate's choice at the polls.
Many thanks from us all but especially from Joe De Asha who was duly re-elected on May 3rd. On the evening of the count it is always a nervous nail biting occasion and we never take anything for granted. Votes stacked up and it was soon clear we had the edge.
Against the national trend, Joe amassed a bigger percentage of votes than last year and took votes from both the Lib Dems and the Tories. Sadly, the BNP took 8% of the votes and created some scaremongery within the village.
Full result was:
De Asha - LABOUR - 1508
Spriggs - CONSERVATIVE - 872
Duncan - LIB DEM - 629
Chesney - BNP - 278
Clearly, our work in the community all year round counts and we promise to continue to serve local residents to the best of our ability.
