The Conservative candidate in the Alyn and Deeside by-election has been to London to discuss her campaign with the Prime Minister.

Sarah Atherton joined the leader of the Welsh Conservatives in the Assembly, Andrew RT Davies, at a meeting on Monday.

Speaking afterwards, Prime Minister Theresa May said: “The Welsh Conservatives have an excellent candidate in Sarah Atherton. I’d like to wish her, and her team, the best of luck with the campaign.”

Sarah said: “I spoke to the Prime Minister about the upcoming election and told her about the great reception I’ve been getting from people on the doorstep.”

Sarah, who’s a former nurse, says a common theme on the doorstep across the constituency is the desire for change.

“There’s a lot of frustration with the Welsh Labour government in Cardiff Bay. Problems in the Welsh health service, lack of real support for education, a downbeat approach to Brexit are just a few of the real concerns among voters.

“I’m campaigning on all of these issues, and if I am elected, I will act on them.”

The by-election will be held on February 6th.
