Levenshulme Community Association is delighted to announce hustings for the local elections on Thursday 27 April 2023.
This is an opportunity for anyone to come along and ask questions of the candidates. The hustings will be held at St Peter’s Church on Stockport Road (opposite Arcadia Library and Leisure Centre).
18.30 Levenshulme hustings
20.00 Burnage hustings
All candidates (listed below) have been invited to attend personally or send a representative. The hustings will be chaired by Rev George Reeves.
Levenshulme is one of the few areas that still holds hustings. We hold hustings for both Burnage Ward and Levenshulme Ward because the Levenshulme community stretches across the Ward boundaries. The LCA has done so for many years and we believe it is an important event to enable residents to hold candidates to account and hear what their ideas are for our community.
Everyone is welcome. We hope to see you at the hustings.
Remember that you must bring photo ID to the polling station to vote. This is a new requirement imposed by the government. You can find out further information HERE. A full list of which forms of ID will be accepted is available HERE.
Levenshulme Community Association was pleased to host the Burnage Ward hustings at St Peter’s Church this evening.
We are grateful to Greg Sammons who represented the Liberal Democrats (standing in for Bryn Coombes) and Sham Raja who represented the Conservative Party (standing in for Md Shahed Hossain). They are pictured here with Jeremy Hoad (LCA Secretary) who hosted the evening.
Unfortunately Dick Venes (Green Party) had to pull out due to illness. Murtaza Ranjha Iqbal (Labour Party) sent his apologies.
Thanks to Rev. George Reeves for providing St Peter’s Church as such a splendid venue.
We look forward to returning to St Peter’s for the Levenshulme Ward hustings at 15.00 on Saturday 23 April.
It’s election time again and we’re back with hustings for both Burnage Ward and Levenshulme Ward after being prevented from holding them because of the pandemic restrictions.
This is your opportunity to ask questions of local election candidates in person and see how they respond. All questions will be addressed to all candidates. These are the people standing to be your local councillor and representative on Manchester City Council.
Thank you to Rev. George Reeves, Rector of St Peter and St Mark’s Parish, for kindly hosting the hustings at St Peter’s Church.
