Although it was disappointing not to have won the election last week, it has been great walking around the Town talking to people about the elections.
For the first time in a long time, Labour supporters started to believe a Labour candidate could win, although we still have a way to go, the Lib Dem election mantra "Labour can't win here" has become redundant, not fit for repeating, throughout the Mendip District Labour candidates increased their votes over last times results.
The really good and positive outcome is Labour members are saying, what's next? They are motivated and are looking to take the fight to the Conservative led government, we are looking to build our membership, up our campaigning and show to the people Labour is back, more confident and looking to lead.
In Shepton west and Wells st Cuthbert, Labour proved to be competitive, in Street Labour polled respectably.
The Labour Party meets this week to discuss our forward plans, one thing can be assured Labour is more confident, active and will take on the issues that people are concerned.
The people of the Wells constituency are going to hear and see a lot more of labour in the coming years, what a difference a year makes.
