No change in Chard
Chard Town Council is solidly under the control of the LibDems. So the fact that there was a by-election on 6 May in Holyrood Ward will not change very much. The council before the by-election comprised 10 LibDems, 3 Independents and 1 Green Councillor and one vacancy.
So the fact that the by-election was actually quite close is perhaps the main point of interest. Nevertheless congratulations to Claire Brown who won the seat for the LibDems.
Votes were as follows:
- 296 Claire Brown – LibDem
- 276 Connor Payne – Conservative
- 193 Tim Eggins – Green Party
