At a Party in The Lamb in Andover, Chris Lynn thanked his helpers at the recent by-election in Winton Ward, which he won with a clear majority over all the other parties put together.
"I am really grateful for all the help I got on the streets and from Church Close in my campaign. I am looking forward to working with my Conservative colleagues on the Council and representing those who live in the Ward."
His aqent, David Kirk, also thanked the team, and Leonie Rickard for hosting the party in her pub.
Ian Carr, leader of Test Valley Borough Council, welcomed Chris into the Group.
Sir George said that it was a first class result, against a difficult background. "Our opponents were hoping to do a Brent East in Hampshire North West and they were seen off."
