Labour get clean sweep in Curborough Ward at local elections

The Labour Party candidates in Curborough Ward won both District Council seats and all three City Council seats. So, Curborough residents now have one returning Labour Councillor in Colin Ball, a new District Councillor in Dave Robertson and a new City Councillor in Matthew Field. All three have committed to continue with the monthly advice surgery at the Jigsaw Community Hub on Dimbles Lane on the third Friday of the month. They will also keep on with the regular Street Surgeries which Councillor Ball started after his election last July, as well as keeping residents updated through regular Newsletters.

Councillor Ball said: “I was both humbled and honoured by the confidence that the people of Curborough have shown in me to elect me to serve them for another four years. I’m also really pleased that Dave will be joining me at the District Council and that both he and Matthew will be with me at the City Council. We are all going to work very hard for everyone in Curborough and help them as much as we can – and also hold the Tories vigorously to account at both Councils.”


Councillor Robertson added: “I’m really pleased to be joining Colin at the District Council, so that I can continue to support him fully in public in the same way that I have done behind the scenes for the past few years.”

Councillor Field said: “I’m really looking forward to working with Colin and Dave on the City Council and will do my utmost to make sure that I repay the trust that the voters in Curborough have put in me.”
