Charlton Society general election hustings, 25 April

The Charlton Society is pleased to announce its General Election Hustings, which will take place on Saturday 25 April at 2.30pm in the Assembly Rooms in Charlton Village, SE7.

This event is free and is open to all.

This local hustings is a vital chance for interested residents to hear and question candidates for Greenwich & Woolwich seeking their vote in the May 2015 general election.

We are delighted that all the candidates so far declared will be attending the event.

Each of the candidates will make an opening statement, followed by questions from the audience.

What are the candidates’ national policies? How will the candidates represent the people of Greenwich & Woolwich if elected? What are their priorities for the area? What plans do they have to improve life for residents in Charlton?

Charlton Society secretary Roden Richardson says: “This is the first general election hustings that the Charlton Society has ever held. Following on from our two very successful local election hustings held last May, we hope this will be an afternoon of lively debate.

“It’s exactly the sort of thing that we should be doing to engage and excite the Charlton community. Voters will have the chance to meet and question all the people putting themselves forward to be our next MP in perhaps the most important general election for a generation.”
