Ruth Juett said: "I've lived all over the place but I fell in love with Chesham very quickly, the people are so friendly and they really care about their community - I'm looking forward to getting cracking into some hard work. I did a lot of door knocking and met a lot of people but you never know how people are going to vote on the day so I was very nervous - it's very exciting to win and I've got a few issues I want to look at straight away."
