Facing tough questions from Wigan’s young people

Lisa was delighted to take part in a hustings event at Abraham Guest school. The newly built school features some amazing facilities and was a perfect setting for the question time event. Lisa said: “the young people in the audience told me that peer pressure, education, part-time jobs and relations with the police were among their top priorities. I hope to meet with them again if elected to support their campaigns. Their passion and dedication is something Wigan should be proud of.”

In addition to election candidates, the panel also featured Wigan’s Member of the Youth Parliament, Hollie McChrystal, and Russell Ainscough of Communic8, the forum for Wigan’s High Schools. The Wigan Evening Post covered the story here. Earlier this month Lisa also faced questions from students at Winstanley College.
