  • Conservatives                         22
  • Resident's Associations          19

In the expanded Thames Ditton ward the vote count was :-

  • Craig Harrison                     Conservative                                               441 

* HW & WG Residents' Associations candidates were jointly sponsored by the Thames Ditton & Weston Green Residents' Association and the Hinchley Wood Residents Association.
Tannia Shipley had the distinction of polling the highest  vote of  any candidate in Elmbridge, and we send her our best wishes for her year as Mayor of Elmbridge.
Running a successful campaign depends on the goodwill and help of volunteers; and our marvellous results reflect the benefit of their contributions - delivering manifestos, displaying election boards, and patiently working as tellers at the polling stations.  The Association's sincere thanks go to all of them.
Our councillors look forward to representing residents in Council in this challenging and exciting period.
