Well done to Jaquie, and everyone who worked so hard to achieve this great start to 2018.
This is the fourth by-election success for North Devon Lib Dems in just three months. In November Lib Dems gained two seats from the Conservatives - one on North Devon District Council and one on Braunton Town Council. Then in December there was a win from the Conservatives on Barnstaple Town Council.
Proving yet again how people appreciate the support they get from their local Liberal Democrat councillors.
