The Bracknell Conservatives are celebrating a clean sweep as all of their candidates won their respective contests.

Their biggest wins were in Wokingham Borough, where all three won.

The borough is split between four Conservative associations, in Wokingham, Reading East, Maidenhead, and Bracknell.

All of the candidates in the Bracknell association won their respective elections.

Incumbent councillors Charles Margetts and Pauline Helliar-Symons held onto their Finchampstead North and Wokingham Without ward seats, and Mr Margett’s wife Rebecca won in Finchampstead South.

Meanwhile, James Alexander won the Great Hollands South by-election to get onto Bracknell Town Council, and Paul Widdowson won the Little Sandhurst by-election to get onto Sandhurst Town Council.

The candidates celebrated with James Sunderland, the MP for Bracknell.

Congratulating them, Mr Sunderland said: “You’ve all done incredibly well.

“Pauline, it was always in the bag. Only a 600 vote majority, nothing to worry about! James, well done in Great Hollands, Paul well done. Yours was the slam dunk of all of them.

“And Rebecca, a new candidate, ‘the better half’, far more talented, well done to you, brilliant result. We’ve got to make sure we keep Bracknell Forest and Wokingham Borough Councils.

“The Margetts are the ‘it’ couple of Finchampstead, one half controls North, one half controls South, it’s amazing.

“I would hope now that Wokingham Conservative Association can comprehensively get a grip of what we need to do. We shouldn’t have so many Lib Dem councillors. We’ve got to work an awful lot harder, get a lot more people on the ground.”

Mrs Helliar-Symons said: “The Lib Dems are very good at propaganda”. “So counter it”, Mr Sunderland replied.

The Wokingham Liberal Democrats won three seats at the expense of the Conservatives in Evendons, Emmbrook and Wescott, all wards within Wokingham town itself.

Gerry Barber, chairman of the Bracknell Conservative Association said: “As chairman I’m really proud of all the effort that’s been put in. Thanks James for your support, and all the volunteers across the Association for the work they’ve put in, which led to a very successful five wins, five out of five.

“We’ve just got to make sure we keep on going in the 2022 campaign. And we start again now.”

Mr Sunderland added: “This is about delivery of services, delivery of outcomes, fulfilling promises, this is about supporting local people, and the hard work starts now. It’s not in the bag, it’s part of a much longer journey.”

The newly elected councillors met at the Trilake Country & Fishing Park in Yateley Road, Sandhurst on Monday, May 10.
