Sir – I would like to thank those who voted for me in the local elections last week.

I am disappointed that I did not get in and even more disappointed that after all the effort of trying to talk to people in the ward, a lot of people who pledged support for me did not go out and vote on the day.

However, I enjoyed talking to a lot of people in the ward and appreciate the issues that affect people’s quality of life in Witney.

I hope that I can help improve matters in the future.

James Robertshaw, UKIP candidate, Witney South ward, High Street, Witney
