Cheadle and Hazel Grove go amber!

As the dust settles after a historic general election result, the Liberal Democrats are one of the major winners with a record seat total. Despite a Labour landslide, the Lib Dem’s have remained defiant with two huge wins in Greater Manchester.

In Cheadle, local councillor Tom Morrison, managed to win nearly 50% of the vote to romp home to victory and return Cheadle to the Liberal Democrat’s.

Leader of the council, and former Cheadle MP, Cllr Mark Hunter said,

“It’s excellent to see Cheadle return to the Liberal Democrat’s, and in Tom they’ve got one of the best around. In the time that Tom has been a councillor, he has become pivotal figure in the community, and I’m glad that the voters can see how well he advocates for his residents.

Thanks to Tom and Lisa’s incredible work over the last few years, Cheadle and Hazel Grove have put their faith in two Liberal Democrats who will be real advocates for their communities in parliament, a brilliant night to top off many years of hard work!”

Lisa Smart, another Stockport Liberal Democrat councillor, became the Hazel Grove constituencies first ever woman MP, gaining over 17,000 votes in the process.

Fellow Bredbury Green & Romiley councillor and Deputy Leader of Stockport council, Cllr Mark Roberts said

“I’m delighted Lisa has been elected by the people of Hazel Grove, when it comes to her campaigns for Stepping Hill Hospital, stopping companies dumping sewage in our rivers or for the local fire station, Hazel Grove has gained a brilliant local champion. I know there is no better person to fight for our interests in Westminster.”
