The Green Party was celebrating today after it achieved two storming victories in by-elections on Thursday 7 September.
Greens won seats on Lewes District Council and Cannock Chase Council, both of them from the Conversatives and by a wide margin - achieving almost 50% of the vote in Cannock Chase and 40% of the vote in Lewes.
Co-Leader Jonathan Bartley welcomed the results and the elections of Johnny Denis (Lewes) and Stuart Crabtree (Cannock) saying:
"That’s two new Greens making a difference in their community. Two new Greens putting in place the foundations for yet more future success."
