I never did report back on the Easton by-election which was a fantastic result for local Conservatives. The seat borders Norwich South, so it gives all parties something to think about. Labour didn't even have a candidate, but the LibDems threw the kitchen sink at this one. Even saw my LibDem opponent there on polling day! It was a textbook campaign for the Conservatives and really showed what could be done - and a c.7% swing to us later, another Tory Councillor on South Norfolk District Council!

Full Result:
Margaret Dewsbury (Cons) 500 votes
LibDem 336 votes
Green 40 votes

Conservative hold, majority 164

Well Done to Margaret, Vince and the team!
