Greens stood in eleven divisions in our area to contest in the Surrey County Council elections. We got 2509 votes overall - 6% of the total, which would be enough for a candidate to keep their deposit in a general election! This is fantastic considering that we've never stood any candidates before and we had zero funds to campaign.

Particularly good divisions were Shere, where we got 11%,  Haslemere with 8.7% and Godalming North with 8.4%. We also beat Labour in three divisions!  There was no surprising results with both the Conservatives and Lib Dems retaining their seats.
