NHDC: Leader of the council Cllr Lynda Needham is ‘happy’ with results

LEADER of North Herts District Council Cllr Lynda Needham has said that she is “happy” with her party’s local election results.

The Conservative party, which runs the council, won all its seats back and gained one in Chesfield ward.

“We have held every one of our seats and gained one too, so we are happy with that,” said Cllr Needham.

“I thought we might run a couple of fairly close contests in Hitchin, but the results were roughly what I was expecting.

“I’m very pleased with keeping our seats and the gain in Chesfield.
