Greasley results

The result for Greasley (Newthorpe and Giltbrook)ward is as follows.

The full result was:
Greasley (Giltbrook & Newthorpe) ward

Penny Spenceley-Stevens (Con) 1125
Ed Jacobs (Lab) 600

Wayne Shelbourn (BNP) 301
Gwen Robb (Lib-Dem) 232
Keith Marriott (UKIP) 31

BNP Percentage: 13.1%

We are not too disappointed with the result, considering the adverse publicity the BNP has had locally in recent months. Our main objectives are the European elections in June in which to have an East Midlands MEP elected we require a 13% vote share in the region as a whole, which we achieved in Greasley alone, a well known Tory stronghold.

On a more positive note, during the campaign Broxtowe has received 33 membership enquiries (the total of the UKIP vote) which will be followed up with home visits with party literature. To turn these enquiries into new members and future activists will be a fantastic achievement.

We would like to congratulate Penny Spenceley-Stevens for becoming the new Conservative Councillor for the Greasley ward and wish her all the best in her new role.
