Three candidates – all currently serving on Honiton Town Council – are set to attend a hustings at Honiton Methodist Hall, on Friday, July 15, from 2pm.

Honiton residents will have the chance to quiz candidates for a district council seat in Honiton’s St Michael’s ward.

The opportunity comes off the back of Cllr David Foster’s sudden resignation.

Three candidates – all currently serving on Honiton Town Council – are set to attend a hustings at Honiton Methodist Hall, on Friday, July 15, from 2pm.

They are Ashley Alder (UKIP), Henry Brown (Labour) and John Taylor (Independent East Devon Alliance). June Brown, chair of Honiton Senior Voice, said: “We have been approached to hold a hustings because we have a proven track record over many years and because people want more information about candidates who present themselves.

“The district council controls many services and it is only right electors get the chance to meet and question those who wish to serve them as councillors. We are very pleased that with one exception the candidates have agreed to come along.”
