Result of May 6th Local Elections & CB Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

Many thanks to all who voted in the Local, PCC and Referendum votes…. as you will see the local vote in Colston Bassett was pleasingly high when measured across the pan-Bingham West percentages, so thanks to all who made the effort.
