Manuela Perteghella is the Liberal Democrat MP Stratford on Avon.  After a career in Higher Education, she was elected to Stratford on Avon District Council, proudly representing the ward of Welford on Avon, where she lives with her family. She was elected to parliament on July 4th 2024. She is a trustee of the local Scout group, volunteered as a school governor and is a director of a social enterprise supporting local artists. Manuela holds a doctorate in literature and translation. She has worked for several years as a university lecturer,  published research in the field of European literature, and produced community arts projects.

After 14 years of this chaotic Conservative government, Stratford on Avon constituents deserve a local champion as their MP. “Thank you to everyone who voted in the General Election, whichever party you supported. As the new MP for Stratford-on-Avon I am here to represent and help our whole community. People have voted for change and that’s what I am already working to deliver - the positive change that will get a fair deal for local people." 

"I am fighting every day for you, your family, and our community. And I’m here for you whenever you need me. 
Please get in touch with any issue you have, no matter how small. My job is to be a strong voice for our area and a hardworking champion for you and your family. Thank you for your support.”

An experienced community leader. Manuela was Parish Council Champion for the District, Vice-chair of both the Audit and Standards committee, and of the Climate Change Panel, where she ensured the Council implemented its programme to increase the resilience of our communities to the impacts of climate change.

A hard-working politician. Manuela was a hard-working councillor all year round, standing up for her constituents on several issues. She takes that same enthusiasm and determination to parliament. She is a compassionate and caring politician, who listens and works with her constituents, tier of governments and agencies to help resolve issues.

A local champion. Manuela has campaigned on several issues affecting our communities, from tackling food insecurity to demanding action on sewage in our rivers, from protecting our green spaces and woods from inappropriate development to campaigning for better public transport in our rural areas.
