Labour’s Beccy Cooper has won the Marine seat in Worthing council with a fantastic 47 per cent share of the vote – a clear nine points ahead of the Tories. The seat, in our neighbouring Worthing West constituency, used to be a Tory stronghold. Not now!
Now there is no such thing as a Tory safe seat. The voters in Worthing and Adur are sending that message loud and clear.
See Beccy’s Facebook page for more info on her brilliant campaign.
And please note that in Adur and in East Worthing we are starting the process of selecting our candidates now for next year’s elections.
Look out for more details in your in-box.
The tide is turning for Labour in Worthing and in Adur. We had some close results in the county elections in May and of course in EWS we more than doubled our share of the vote in general election in June with our candidate Sophie Cook.
If you would like to be a part of Labour's resurgence on the South Coast take a look at our volunteer page and let us know how you can get involved.
Onwards and upwards!
