Election day and the very long night that followed was an historic time for the Labour Party team in Ashburton.

Not only did we return three hard-working Labour councillors in a ward that has always been Conservative, we also played our part in securing a Labour council that will be “Ambitious for Croydon”.

After all we are the only party with councillors in all three of Croydon’s parliamentary constituencies: North, Central and South.

We have said our thank yous to all the party activists and supporters that helped, but the biggest thank you must go to the electorate who put their faith and trust in us at the ballot box.

All elected representatives of any political hue will agree this is a humbling occasion. We promise to be available and work hard for all residents. You have put your trust in us and we won’t let you down.

Councillors Andrew Rendle, Maddie Henson, Stephen Mann

    I regret not to have received such a “letter”. It would have be perfect for lining the bottom of my daughter’s budgerigar cage.
