General Election Hustings Postponed – Newton Abbot

by jackiebrodie on 22 May, 2017

The General Election Hustings 2017, that were due to take place tomorrow Weds 24th, at St Paul’s Church have been postponed, in the light of the tragic events in Manchester yesterday. Our thoughts are with all those affected by the attack.

We, along with the other political parties have agreed to suspend our campaigns until further notice.

However, I apologise to some residents in Broadlands area of Newton Abbot, who have received election literature from us today. I had contacted all deliverers this morning by email informing them that we would not be delivering today. Unfortunately the message did not get through to one of our deliverers, who also had been out from early morning and was unaware of the news. I have ensured that all deliverers are aware that we continue to suspend our campaign activities tomorrow as well, in respect for all of those involved, and the city of Manchester.

    Any idea when the postponed hustings in Newton Abbot will now be happening?
    I’d been checking internet regularly since election was announced for a hustings and this was the first I’d heard that one was even planned!
