Who is Sarah Atherton?

Married to Nick, she went to a comprehensive school and after leaving at 16, joined the regular army, serving in the Intelligence Corps.

After leaving to start a family, she trained as a nurse at the local Maelor Hospital in Wrexham, becoming a specialist district nurse.

She later became a social worker, specialising in mental health and older people and opened and ran her own business in Wrexham, a small micro-brewery, based on the industrial estate, whilst bringing my son up as a single parent.

How would she vote on Brexit?

She says she will vote for a leave deal as she is “committed to standing up for the result of the 2016 EU referendum”.

Who is Mary Wimbury?

Aged 50, she is married to a Welsh speaker and learnt Welsh winning the prose trophy in the 2018 Eisteddfod y Dysgwyr in Llanrwst.

The couple have three children: two students and our eldest working in Greater Manchester.

Her previous job was improving social care services – care homes and care at home – for a Wales-wide organisation based in Wrexham.

She previously ran a UK-wide charity running maths competitions and summer schools for secondary school children and in the 1990s ran a successful parliamentary campaign to keep key sporting events available on free to air television for everyone to enjoy.

She says austerity is the biggest problem facing Wales, and Wrexham.

How would she vote on Brexit?

She says any Brexit deal has to be put back to the people.

“Boris’ deal is about deregulating our economy, allowing the rich to become richer, putting in jeopardy our peace and security and selling off our NHS – this is not something I could support.”
