The Chippenham candidates who will be standing to represent the area in parliament are still hoping to sway voters ahead of the election.

The new Chippenham boundaries stretch the constituency across from Corsham to Calne and up to Royal Wootton Basset.

It includes villages around its border such as Rudloe, Foxham, Lydiard Millicent, Broad Hinton, Winterbourne Bassett and Lacock.

The old constituency was divided up, a small section in the south falling into South West Wiltshire, a large central chunk belonging to the new Melksham and Devizes, the northern tip going to South Cotswolds.

Michelle Donelan, the Conservative MP who has represented Chippenham since 2015, has left the Chippenham constituency to stand for the new Melksham and Devizes seat.

Residents will have their say on Thursday, July 4, voting for the individual they believe will best support their area.

The Green Party candidate, Declan Basely, said: "It's been a pleasure to speak with so many local people over the past few weeks, a common theme of our conversations is growing concerns for the environment, especially around sewage in our rivers. 

“I'm proud to be giving the climate-conscious people of Chippenham constituency the opportunity to vote for protecting our natural world.

“More and more people are putting their trust in the Greens to repair the damage that's been done to our country.

“We have a vision of a fairer, more sustainable future for Britain, and I want to help deliver it."

Independent candidate, Ed Deedigan said: "Supporting the NHS is vital. We must not invest in private healthcare over the NHS.

“More services are needed for dementia care, the blind, pregnancy and maternity discrimination, and rheumatology.

“Allocating GDP to health and education could address these needs. Candidates who don’t live here can’t understand local needs.

“Housing repairs, especially in housing associations, are crucial. Lacock residents need free resident permits.

“Greater accountability from the Town Council, which has ignored numerous complaints, is necessary.

“Despite Neeld Hall's redevelopment, it’s denied to community organisations, including the NHS, while offered free to profit-making groups."

Liberal Democrat candidate, Sarah Gibson said: "This is a crucial election here, where every single vote counts.

“For those of you that are still undecided, I want to say this. We need a strong local champion in this area, a champion who listens and works for you. 

“We need to end the crisis in the NHS. We need to protect our local environment and we must be firm on defence and protect the vulnerable.

“Let’s end divisive politics and vote for better. Only by voting for me, Sarah Gibson and the Liberal Democrats on the 4th July, can your voice for change be heard."

Labour candidate, Ravi Venkatesh said: “After 14 years of Conservative chaos, Britain is crying out for change.

“Public services are decimated, the economy is stagnating, and people are struggling to make ends meet.

“The Liberal Democrats share responsibility for the first five years of this, implementing the austerity programme in coalition with the Tories

"Labour offers a clear alternative that focuses on rebuilding our NHS, investing in education, making work pay and addressing the climate crisis.

“Only Labour has the vision and policies to build a fairer society where wealth and opportunity is created and shared. Vote for change on  July 4. Vote for Labour."

Conservative candidate, Nic Puntis, said: "“As we approach the end of the election campaign, I would like to say a big thank you to residents across the Chippenham constituency for the courtesy and engagement that I have been shown whilst out and about.

"I would also like to say good luck to my fellow candidates. We may have differing political views but the majority of candidates who stand for election are decent community minded people with your interests at heart. No matter who you vote for, please do vote. We are privileged to live in a country where we have free and fair elections.”

The Reform candidate, Benjamin Ginsburg has also contacted for comment.
