After a very busy number of weeks the elections are now over and I am delighted that my colleague Cllr. Chris Blakeley  was re-elected with a 900 majority. We knew that these elections were going to be difficult across the Wirral. We were correct in that we lost 5 excellent councillors, Ian Lewis. Sue Taylor, Sheila Clarke MBE, James Keeley and Tom Anderson.  I wish them all well and I’m sure we will see alot of them again politically in the future.

On a happier note, another reason for me being so busy was that I became a Grandad to a Grandaughter Elsie May.  After her birth both she and my daughter were in and out of hospital so that was a little distracting. However both are now doing fine.

Back to Moreton & Saughall Massie and on the run up to the elections Chris, our other colleague Cllr. Simon Mountney and I worked tirelessly around the ward. We tried to talk to as many residents as we could and got literature to every house in the ward.  We also had days walking around the Town Centre again talking to people and distributing leaflets.  We feel we have learned many of our residents feelings and concerns.  It will be tough at the Town Hall as the Labour Group have gained 7 seats, but we three will be pushing even harder for the good of Moreton West & Saughall Massie.  Another welcoming result in the elections was the return of Cllr. Leah Fraser  who won the Wallasey ward by a convincing  1062.

Thanks to all that voted for Chris, and keeping our ward 100% Conservative Councillors.
