David Peat, the Chairman of Ribble Valley Conservative Association, states, “This is testament to the incredible amount of hard work put in by our candidates 4 of which were standing for the County for the first time. Praise must go our Agents: Ken Hind, former MP for West Lancashire, who masterminded the campaign in Clitheroe and put in a shift and a half and Peter Mullineaux who led operations in South Ribble with his usual calm demeanour. I should also not forget our Sub-Agent, David Berryman who travelled hither and thither supporting Candidates across the Borough. In the end it was a very satisfying result. Thanks go to our many councillors, members and supporters who campaigned on social media, the doorstep and delivered leaflets under difficult restrictions caused by Covid regulations.”
