Conservatives have retained all three seats in Edgware ward.

Councillors Helena Hart and Joan Scannell will remain in the ward after receiving the most votes, alongside Brian Gordon who has moved from Hale ward.

Cllr Gordon said: “I’m a lifelong Edgware resident and I’ll make sure it continues to be a fine beacon of Barnet.”

Cllr Hart told the Times Series: “I’ve got a lot of plans – the biggest thing on the horizon is the Royal Free’s proposed acquisition of Barnet and Chase Farm. I’ll make sure that all runs smoothly."

Having always been passionate about health issues in the borough, she is also looking forward to launching a series of outdoor gyms in the borough's parks.

She added: “Other than that, I’m looking forward to continuing to represent the people of Barnet.”
