On Tuesday 5th May, the churches in Yeovil organised a hustings involving all five Yeovil Constituency candidates for the 2015 General Election. The hustings was a chance for the candidates to put forward their vision, and to hear them answer and debate questions posed by members of the audience.
This was a fantastic event, hosted by Yeovil Community Church, and with a capacity crowd. Some information is available below on each of the candidates, and the twitter feed from during the meeting is available here (content is not the responsibility of St John’s):
