The hustings will be chaired by Geof Sewell from the Quakers who said: “In our 2015 Sowerby Hustings, there was a chance for local voters to meet and challenge the candidates face to face, in a way that was both civil and enlightening.

“We hope that this venture by Thirsk Churches Together will maintain the tradition of respect for the community, the candidates and the truth.”
