Though the national results were extremely disappointing - and particularly frustrating in the number of Lib Dem target seats missed by under 1000 votes - the local results in Tonbridge and Malling provided a much needed boost.
In Tonbridge and Malling we more than doubled our share of the vote (an increase of 131% over the 2017 result), moving from third into second place and becoming the challenger to the Conservatives.

* 2017 total included 1,857 votes for UKIP.
Being a non-target seat, this was achieved using just local resources and volunteers.
Whatever the new Government brings, your Liberal Democrat Councillors in Tonbridge, Larkfield, East and West Malling, Leybourne and Edenbridge, and across the whole country will work to ensure that this government is held to account and they are held to the promises made in their manifesto and election campaign.
