On the campaign trail – Hustings at Queen’s Hall Methodist Church

The first hustings of the election campaign took place last Monday with over 130 local people turning out to quiz Lisa and the other parliamentary candidates for Wigan.

The debate was lively and saw questions being posed on topics that ranged from national education policy through to litter and keeping Wigan’s streets clean.

Lisa thoroughly enjoyed the debate, saying:

‘Events like this prove that people really are interested in politics and what happens in their area. This was a great chance for voters in Wigan to raise issues that matter to them and I am delighted to have been invited – they definitely didn’t let us off easy, there were some great questions and a great turnout.’

A video of the debate is going to be available on the site soon – stay tuned!
