The Forest of Dean has a second Green Party councillor with Sid Phelps win in Lydbrook and Ruardean. Sid joins Chris McFarlane who has shown just how good a dedicated and concerned Green Councillor can be. 

Sid and Chris

Sid's win came as the result of a massive 27.9% vote increase for the Green Party mostly at the expense of the Labour and UKIP candidates and came as a result of both the growing attractiveness of Green Party ideas to local communities as well as Sid's commitment and hard work in the election.
