Last evening Tunbridge Wells Conservative Association's members and helpers gathered in the grounds of one of the constituency's finest houses, Mabledon Park (the childhood home of the architect Decimus Burton) to celebrate remarkable results on Thursday 7 May.
Not only did Greg Clark MP poll the largest ever Conservative vote in the constituency but we had a clean-sweep of all 17 council seats. This included gaining the seat of the Labour group leader and for me perhaps the greatest triumph of all, regaining from UKIP their only two council seats in the Borough. We also took control of the Southborough Town Council from Labour winning all 12 seats contested.
This was the amazing pastoral view greeting guests upon arrival
