One thought on “No change in political hue in Church, Katesgrove, Redlands and Whitley wards

  1. It’s good news however it’s still a shockingly low turnout in Katesgrove. I shall remember this when my neighbours and local residents start whinging about bins, flytipping, parking, local planning applications and other local community issues.
