For the first time since its creation in 1974, Chesham and Amersham will have a non-Conservative MP, following a shock win for the Liberal Democrats in the constituency’s by-election.

Sarah Green, who was one of the outsiders to win the seat, stole the show as she managed to achieve an incredible 21, 517 votes, on Thursday, June 18

She outdid the favourite in Peter Fleet who scored 13,489 votes – meaning the new MP gained a majority of over 8,000 votes in a historical night for both towns.

Prior to her win, there had only been two MPs for the constituency in Ian Gilmour, Baron Gilmour of Craigmillar between 1974 and 1992 and Cheryl Gillan between 1992 and 2021.

What the winner had to say 

Both of whom were Conservatives and both of whom have since passed away.

Her shock win is the conclusion of a stellar campaign as she aims to help improve certain areas of Chesham and Amersham with matters that seem to be at the heart of the town’s residents.

For example, on her website, there are several petitions which residents are able to sign which could benefit both towns.

This includes a petition to save Amersham Police Counter from closure, to have more car charging points within both areas due to the rise of electrical cars, scrapping the tip tax, potentially improving the roads in Chesham due to fears of safety and many more.

She managed to achieve more than 21,000 votes

Prior to entering politics, she founded the Green and Ginger Communications company in January 2015, which aims to help clients through delivering training, coaching and communications support.

She also worked as a press officer for the House of Commons between October 2006 and January 2008, before having numerous roles at Euromonitor International over the next five years.

The Welsh MP also studied at both Aberystwyth University and Manchester Metropolitan University respectively.
