District Council Results September 2021


There appears to have been a historically low turnout at 28*%.  Either the voters have become completely disenfranchised or totally apathetic. 

The conservatives have misjudged the mood of the traditional Tory Tenbury electorate by fielding a candidate that lived in Malvern rather than Tenbury whilst Labour and Lib Dems continue to offer no credible candidates or policies.

Despite this expensive and somewhat pointless exercise in local democracy the residents of Tenbury should benefit from having a local councillor well versed in the frustrating and at time incomprehensible ways of the District Council. 

2011 53.2%
2007 53.2%
2003 45.7%
1997 79.3%

Tenbury Election is a non event!

The recent local council elections in Tenbury turned into a non-event.

As the number of people standing for election was equal to or less than the number of spaces available the elections were not put to the vote.

Only two people stood for election to Malvern Hills District Council (both Conservative) so both were "elected"

District Councillors: Tony Penn (Conservative) & Bridget Margaret Louise Thomas (Conservative).

For Tenbury Town Council only 11 people stood for 13 places.

The newly elected Councillors will take up their seats in May. 

Tenbury Town Councillors (Town Ward): Andrea Brittain (Independent); Maggie Davies (Independent); Diann Dowell (Independent); Mary Drummond; Janet Margaret Fielder; Philip Alexander Heath; Natalie Maria McVey; Jonathan Pryce Morgan (Labour); David Patrick; Alan Gordon Wilkinson (Independent).
Tenbury Town Councillor (St Michael's Ward): Eric David Hudson (Independent).

There are still vacancies for one Councillor for Tenbury Town (Town Ward) and one Councillor for Tenbury Town (St Michael's Ward). These vacancies will be filled by co-option if there are any volunteers.
