Residents of Wilmslow have made big gains in the 2019 local elections winning all the seats which they were contesting on Cheshire East Council from the Conservatives.
As a result the group has increased the number of members they have representing Wilmslow on CEC from one to four leaving Don Stockton as the only Conservative borough councillor representing the town.
Councillor Mark Goldsmith, who has been elected to represent the Wilmslow West & Chorley Ward, said "This is a great result for RoW. We have had four wins out of four today to make it a clean sweep. So a big thank you to everyone who helped us to win and who trusted us with their vote.
"The feedback we got on the doorstep was that voters are sick of being ignored by Cheshire East Council. Our win was not down to Brexit as we would have won without it. However, it did increase our margin of victory though. We have been contesting and winning seats in Wilmslow for many years now, but this is a tipping point for our organisation as we now become the dominant party within the town.
"This is great for local democracy as it means people in Wilmslow now have a credible alternative to the Conservatives, so their vote will never be taken for granted again.
"Tonight, we will celebrate our success, but the hard work starts Tuesday. Then we can start to fix the many issues our town suffers from that have been ignored for far too long.
"We can't wait to begin."
