Hustings in Sidmouth: District Council Election ........ Wednesday 15th April
This is from the original letter sent out to declared candidates.
[Although the format of the final evening might change: see updates]
Dear Prospective EDDC Candidate
I would like to invite you to the Vision Group for Sidmouth (VGS) Hustings for the 2015 EDDC elections.
The Hustings will be on Apr 15th at St. Francis Hall, Woolbrook Road, Sidmouth EX10 9XH.
The event will be styled on the BBC Radio 4 programme “Any Questions”.
The Prospective EDDC Candidates will make up the panel to take questions from representative groups and members of the public.
The evening will commence at 7.30pm with refreshments. Our current plan is for the panel to gather at 7.50pm; the session will consist of pre-prepared questions being fielded through the chair to the Prospective Candidates from the audience - namely from those organisations and individuals who have sent in questions. The panelists will not be aware of the exact wording of the questions beforehand; they will not be subject to follow-up questions from the audience, although the chair might chose to ask for clarification. The question-and-answer session will end at 8.50pm approximately with further refreshments. The evening should finish at about 9.15pm.
The event will be moderated by the Chair. Microphones will be available for both panelists and members of the audience fielding questions. Refreshments will be provided by the VGS.
I will provide a further update nearer the time. Please find attached our 2015 Hustings Poster showing all events.
