Sidmouth General Election Hustings Update: | Sidmouth Community


With more comment here:

Vision Group for Sidmouth It is a real shame that the clash occurred but due to the circumstances we had little choice of hall and time. It was a judgement call as to whether to clash, or on the other hand not run a hustings at all.
We hope that the hustings is not boycotted, it doesn’t start until 7.30 pm and the late night shopping finishes at 8.00pm so we are hoping that the people coming to the hustings will come early and take advantage of the shopping.
We must agree that it is unfortunate that Simon Jupp is being slated for not being able to make it, that is not how we see the situation at all.


And here:

Jupp accepted Sidmouth hustings invitation on 15 November – pulled out after deciding to shop in Exmouth instead
