IN what is by now becoming a local tradition, Ledbury's churches are arranging a General Election Hustings event, to take place on Friday, November 29, at 7pm.

Similar events took place in Ledbury in 2015 and 2017, also arranged by the churches.

Event spokesman, Gillian Chowns said: "The hustings events arranged by us in 2015 and 2017 were very well-attended; we anticipate a good turnout on this occasion.

"All the known candidates have already been invited to take part; and we anticipate that all nominated candidates for the election on December 12 will be present to make statements and take questions from the public.

"As before, questions will need to be submitted in advance, via the churches or by email to The final date for questions will be Wednesday November 27, but the chairman may allow follow-up questions on the night.
