Green challenger achieves 25% in Beverley by-election

St Mary's Ward West, parish by-election, East Riding of Yorkshire Council

A great many thanks to everyone for the substantial Green vote on July 30th. We scored just under 25% and came a good second to the Conservatives. There was a 24% turnout, so-so for a ward by-election, and all the results were as follows:

CON - 331 - 41%
GRE - 199 - 25%
IND - 144 - 18%
LD - 128 - 16%

With best wishes,
Charlie Jones-Lewis

Tremendously well done Charlie!
We look forward to more scores like that across the country!
