The Penge Forum General Election Hustings will be held on Wednesday May 17th at Melvin Hall, Melvin Road Penge. So far we have acceptances from John Russell of the Liberal Democrats, Karen Wheller from the Green Party and Ellie Reeves for Labour. The Conservatives have only just announced their candidate, Shaun Bailey, and I am hoping to hear from them soon. We are still waiting to hear whether UKIP have a candidate when nominations close on Thursday 11th May. .
Invitations are being sent to representatives of all political parties who have Parliamentary or EU representation and who are fielding candidates in Lewisham West & Penge Constituency. This should help to make sure the event is manageable
Doors will open at 7pm for tea, coffee and biscuits. We will ask the audience to submit questions as they arrive. These will be sorted into categories so we get a spread of questions.
