Conservatives 'humbled' by Evesham support

Rob George 14th May, 2021   0

EVESHAM’s three newly elected Conservative councillors have thanked residents for their support in last Thursday’s election (May 7)

Conservatives held all three seats in Evesham, with Peter Griffiths winning in Evesham North West, Emma Stokes in Evesham South and Laura Gretton in Harvington.

Across Mid Worcestershire, Conservatives held all 10 divisions the party was defending.

Peter Griffiths, County Councillor for Evesham North West, said: “I’m incredibly humbled by the support I received. Thank you to everyone who voted for me, and if you didn’t, I will still be your voice at County Hall. It’s time now to get on and deliver on the promises I made to the residents of Evesham North West.

“I have also set-up an Evesham North West Facebook group to provide updates for local residents with a particular focus on the first 100 days of the administration.”

County Councillor for Evesham South, Emma Stokes, said: “Thank you for your confidence and support in the elections. As I promised, I will let you know when I know, communication is key – we are all resilient enough if we know what’s coming – and that’s how I intend to operate as your County Councillor.” “Indeed, I have created an Evesham South Facebook page to provide updates of my first 100 days. I will also be looking to distribute a “1st 100 days” leaflet on Friday 13th August!”

Laura Gretton, County Councillor for Harvington, said: “I am very grateful to have been elected as Harvington’s County Councillor.

“Speeding has come up on the agenda of Parish Councils across the division on a regular basis, and Highways matters affect residents every day. It clearly is a difficult thing to improve. Now I’m elected, I will press Highways to make sure the division received its fair share of investment in improving infrastructure, and for innovative schemes to tackle speeding problems.”
