Labour only 200 votes behind in close contest in Peverell


Thank you to everyone who voted for Jeremy Goslin, Labour's candidate for Peverell in the City Council elections on 5 May. 

Local man, Jeremy Goslin, said:

I want to thank all the Peverell residents who put their trust in me. We were just short this time but I pledge to go on campaigning for Peverell ward. This is where I live and where I have raised my family. The campaign to oppose Tory Police cuts has been very well received by local people and we will continue that campaign in the coming months.
