There was also good news in a Town Council byelection:
Helston Town Council – East Ward:
Wendy Radford-Gaby, Con: 251
Con gain from Lib Dem.
Wendy won with 58% of the vote on a 17.1% turnout, this seat was previously held by a Lib Dem Town and County Councillor. The Lib Dems omitted to stand a candidate this time. The result will provide encouargement to Derek Thomas the Conservatives candidate for St Ives who faces a big challenge to gain the seats from the Lib dems at the General Election.
