Whitchurch is to have its own hustings for the forthcoming general election.  All the main parties have been invited to a hustings to be held at the Gill Nethercott Centre on Tuesday April 13th.

The impetus for the event has come from Christian Aid, who are particularly interested in the candidates views on issues such as global poverty caused by climate change, and multinationals tax dodging. Of course any other issues ranging from housing and education policies, taxation issues and even bankers bonuses may be raised.

All  four candidates in the NW Hampshire constituency have agreed to attend. They are: Tom McCann (Liberal Democrat), Sarah Evans (Labour) and Stanley Oram (UK Independence Party) and the present MP  Sir George Young (Conservative).
