A pair of hustings featuring the candidates for the Scarborough and the Whitby seat in the upcoming General Election are set to take place in the town later this month.

The events offer the local electorate the chance to listen to and question the constituency’s next prospective MP.

They will take place at the Northern Lights Suite, Whitby Pavilion on April 18 from 1pm and at The Met, Argyle Road on April 23 from 7.30pm.

Any prospective councillors representing the Whitby area and wanting to be introduced are also welcome to attend the event at the Pavilion.

The organisers are also interested to hear from any community groups who would like to advertise their group, as they are aiming to make the meeting “a real Whitby community event.”

Organiser Joyce Stangoe said: “We want you, the people of Whitby and district, to come along and be involved.

“Whitby Pavilion will be open for lunch and drinks, so come and meet your community and our prospective leaders.”

To submit a question to be asked of the candidates at the hustings at Whitby Pavilion, please email Joy124Stan@gmail.com or telephone 07733615650.
