Three Labour Women Win Local Elections

Labour  holds one seat and adds two others to bring its total to six District Councillors in West Oxfordshire.

Labour - For the Many, Not the Few


Congratulations to our campaign coordinators Luci and Owen an a big THANK YOU to the teams of activists who delivered leaflets, knocked on doors, helped at street stalls, and covered polling stations as well as to those who put together an amazing social media campaign.  

Laetisia Carter

Chipping Norton

Re-elected by a huge margin:

Labour - 1,116 
Conservative 490 
Liberal Democrats 284 

Merilyn Davies

Freeland and Hanborough

Won by a big margin to become the first ever Labour District Councillor in Freeland and Hanborough

(2 seats contested)

Labour & Co-op 741
Conservative 602
Conservative 570
Labour 442 
Independent 370

Rosa Bolger

Witney East

Won by 10 votes (after three re-counts) on her first outing as a candidate.

Labour - 869

Liberal Democrats - 130

We narrowly missed celebrating a fourth victory when Owen came agonisingly close (27 votes out of 1,553 votes cast) to toppling David Harvey in Witney South, and strong second place showings by Dave in Carterton NW and Calvert in Carterton NE will provide a solid platform for future electoral success.

Green - 134
Liberal Democrats - 113  

Dave Wesson

Carterton North West

Conservative -  626
