OLRG's Phil Davies elected in Limpsfield

OLRG now has its second Tandridge District Councillor. We are delighted to report that Phil Davies has been elected for Limpsfield Ward.

The vote was:

Phil Davies, Oxted & Limpsfield Residents Group: 713

Neil O'Brien, Conservative: 472

Sheelagh Crampton, Liberal Democrat: 33

Simon Charles, Labour: 25

The turnout was 43% which we understand is high for a by-election.

Phil joins Jackie Wren who was elected in May as OLRG Councillor for Oxted North and Tandridge.

In a statement after the result, Phil said: 'I am overwhelmed by the support and very, very grateful. I really enjoyed meeting everybody during the campaign and the enthusiasm we found while canvassing was an inspiration. I, and OLRG, will now do our absolute best to represent residents. Thank you so much to everyone who helped to make this happen.
