Honiton hustings – Thursday 25 May 2017

Unlike East Devon hustings, which Hugo Swire refuses to attend, Neil Parish will be attending.

“The public will be able to grill the four candidates for the Tiverton and Honiton Parliamentary seat at a Question Time event.

The session, organised by Honiton Senior Voice, will be held at the town’s methodist hall on Thursday, May 25.

Conservative’s Neil Parish, Labour’s Caroline Kolek, Green Party’s Gill Westcott and Liberal Democrat Matthew Wilson are all vying for the coveted seat.

Senior Voice chair June Brown said: “This is probably the only opportunity Honiton people will have to hear direct from the four parties contesting locally and to question them in a single event. We are hoping for a good turnout.

“The event will again be impartially chaired by Roger Trapani, chair of Seaton Senior Voice, to whom we are very grateful.”

Doors open at the methodist hall at 1.30pm for 2pm start.

Refreshments are available and donations to cover the cost of the event are welcome.”
