Yeovil Climate and Nature Hustings
About the event
Somerset Wildlife Trust is organising this event in order to keep climate change and nature at the heart of this General Election.
With 20,000 members, Somerset Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity, dedicated to conserving a broad range of wild places and fragile habitats, and safeguarding the future of some of the county’s most iconic and vulnerable wildlife. We manage reserves across the county which together equate to over 1,700 hectares of land, and inspire communities to take action for wildlife and get involved in events throughout the year.
Georgia Stokes, SWT CEO will chair the event and there will be plenty of time for questions for your local candidates about climate and nature issues.
All five candidates have confirmed their attendance:
Tony Capozzoli - Independent
Mick Clark - Liberal Democrat
Marcus Fysh - Conservative - has had to now decline due to unforeseen circumstances. He is providing a statement which will be read out on the night.
Terrence Ledlie - Labour
Diane Wood - Green
There will be time for open questions from the public on the night but if you would like to forward a question in advance please email firstname.lastname@example.org
These advance questions will not be shared with the candidates but we will select a handful to start the event.
Ideally we would prefer questions to be from the general public and not from county or district councillors. This is to ensure that the general public get the most chance to have their questions answered.
