After yesterday’s results were announced at Spiceball Leisure Centre, Sean Woodcock said, “Our election wins are evidence of the amount of work done over the year by councillors and party members in the Banbury Ruscote ward . We have an impressive list of achievements on behalf of residents; the refurbishment of Woodgreen Leisure Centre, more bus stops, the rebuilding of The Hill Youth Centre, our continued pushing to upgrade Orchard Way shopping area and ‘Managaed Parking’ (control of verges).”

Mark Cherry said, “It’s a great result from good team work and building on the foundations created by George Parish. We polled over 50% of the vote – have a lot to be proud of.”
