Meeting with the General Election Candidates

On Wednesday 24th May, West Berkshire Stronger Together will be meeting with candidates for the Newbury Constituency in the General Election.

The public meeting will take place at 7pm in the Parish Room of St John’s Church Newbury.

The following candidates have confirmed that they will be attending:

  • Alex Skirvin – Labour Party
  • David Yates – Apolitical Group
  • Judith Bunting – Liberal Democrats
  • Paul Field – Green Party

Richard Benyon was invited to the event, but declined the invitation advising that he was only attending events organised by independent organisations. As a cross-party group, containing members of all political parties and none, we are disappointed not to qualify as an ‘independent’ organisation in Mr Benyon’s eyes.

However, those attending will be able to ask questions of the candidate’s present on the issues that matter to local people in the general election.

If you would like to come, please comment below so that we have an idea of numbers.
