Its Question Time for local would-be MP's in Redcar

Not seen in recent times not one but two Question Time events for the Middlesbrough and Redcar areas are being run offering a real opportunity for voters to put their questions to their local candidates.
"The Redcar Question Time is going to be very interesting with 3-4 candidates and everything to play for. Local issues will be high on the agenda as well as the economy. This election is unusual, people are really thinking about who they are voting for and weighing up candidates and issues" said Friends of the Earth co-ordinator Rob Tucker.

The Rev Catey Morrison will be chairing the event and questions wil be taken beforehand from the audience on a number of topics.

The Redcar & Cleveland event takes place on;
Tuesday 4th May, 7-8.30pm
East Cleveland Baptist church,
Park Avenue,
Redcar. TS10 3LA

Middlesbrough Question Time Husting

Come and meet your local prospective Parliamentary Candidates
With all the Election hoopla and hype, apart from who will be running the country, the most important thing out of the whole event to the people of Middesbrough, is how good an MP will they have? This is a unique opportunity to put your questions to the candidates, to meet them and find out what they are like. Are they going to work hard, have a good track record, stand up for Middlesbrough? What are their stances on the environment, MP expenses, education, crime, defence . . .

The event takes place on;
Thursday 29th April, 7-8.30pm
St Barnabas Church (see photo),
1a Saint Barnabas Road
Linthorpe, Middlesbrough TS5 6JR.

The church is a wonderful venue right in the middle of Linthorpe Road at the heart of Middlesbrough. With room for 300 (see internal photo), good accoustics, audiovisual and kitchen - but we need to know numbers for catering and layout so please email with numbers if you are coming to rob'at'
We are running the Hustings in partnership with "Churches Together" and the Rev Catey Morrison will be chairing the meeting. We have to be very organised so please be on time.
