  1. There is a Climate and Wildlife Hustings on Wednesday 12th June at 6.00 pm at Clun Memorial Hall. questions from local voters will be put to the candidates. Unfortunately, the Conservative candidate is unable to attend but the other four can.,

  2. I would also like to know when and where other hustings will be taking place in the constituency? I think there is one scheduled in Bridgnorth but other than that, I cannot see anything else. Can you enlighten us?

  3. Does Anderson live in Shropshire ?
    Born in Herefordshire and MP for Wolverhampton!!
    Parachuted in just like Thomson.
