Lewes Lib Dems release:

Lewes Liberal Democrats have been celebrating some excellent results, gaining 7 seats on a day that the Conservatives were wiped off Lewes District Council.

The number of Lib Dem councillors almost doubled, from 8 elected in 2019 to 15 councillors in 2023.

At Town Council level, Liberal Democrats have gained control of Seaford Town Council with 13 seats, (winning every seat in which they stood), and retained control of Newhaven Town council with 15 seats.

James MacCleary, Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate and Group Leader said: "It has been fantastic to see these great results.

"I would like to say a massive 'Thank you' to all our candidates for their work both in Lewes District and in Wealden wards. It is the first time we have stood in every seat since 2007, and it is brilliant to have gained 7 councillors to make a strong group of 15 Liberal Democrats.

“Locally, people have made clear they want to be represented by hard working Liberal Democrats who deliver for their towns and villages, people have helped me to build a team of community champions to take on the Conservatives at the next general election here in Lewes constituency.”

Liberal Democrat gains included: Janet Baah winning a seat from the Green Party in Lewes Bridge ward, Paul Mellor seizing the long-held Conservative ward of Ditchling, and Liberal Democrats being the largest groups in Newhaven, (winning all five seats), and Seaford.
