Local elections hustings at Wanstead Library to have environmental focus


An election hustings with an environmental focus will be held at Wanstead Library next month ahead of the local elections on 5 May.

“One candidate from each of the main parties contesting the election in either the Wanstead Village or Wanstead Park wards has been invited. Questions can be submitted in advance or on the night. This is a rare and important opportunity for local people from across the political spectrum to gather in one space, to quiz candidates, and to hear them discuss and debate the multiple issues facing our environment and how to tackle them.” said Paul Kaufman, chair of the East London Humanists, which is organising the event in partnership with the Wanstead Society.

The hustings will start at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm) on 11 April. The event is free and open to all. There will be a collection to cover hall hire costs with any surplus being contributed to the DEC Ukraine appeal.
