Hospice Hosts Hustings

Come along to Christchurch on Tuesday 23rd May at 7.30pm to quiz the candidates on their plans, and hear them debate on key issues for our community. 

Robin Webb, our CEO said “This is a first for Isabel Hospice and we see it as an exciting opportunity to work in partnership with Churches in Welwyn Garden City to give local people the opportunity to ask the candidates questions on issues that are important to them. From the Hospice’s point of view, we are keen to understand the possible impact of each party’s policies on health and social care which is a key issue for people across the country.”

Father Norbert Fernandes, Catholic Priest and Chair of the Churches in Welwyn Garden City group added “Following on from successful hustings at the last two General Elections, we are delighted to give local people this opportunity to meet the candidates and expect the questions to be wide ranging. We hope the night will produce, good, thought-provoking discussions which will inform people about both local and national issues.”

You can submit questions in advance to election2017@christchurchwgc.org.uk. 

Questions will be gathered under themes and posed to each of the candidates on the night.
