I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of good wishes and congratulations on our Labour victory in Rothwell on Thursday – a huge thank you to everyone who’s left messages, phoned, sent texts, emailed, on Facebook and on Twitter. It’s great that we can all share in the good news after working hard for several years to win back Rothwell for Labour. These are just a small selection of the messages of support I’ve received, Thank you everyone.
It was fantastic to be congratulated in church this morning, Esme and I usually attend Rothwell Baptist Church on a Sunday – the very place where the count took place. There’s loads going on at the church and as well as there being a great bunch of people, all kinds of community groups and events take place in the great new building.
