Uncategorized, Article, Event, Info, News

In response to the recent announcement of a general election, Greening Steyning have swung into action and organised a hustings for local MPs to come together and debate the climate crisis and environment.

On Wednesday 26th June we are hosting this event in collaboration with Steyning Grammar School in the main Drama Hall on the Shooting Field site. You can join us to experience a BBC “Question Time” style evening of debate focusing on climate and environment issues.  It’s your chance to put questions to the candidates in Arundel and South Downs Constituency. Candidates from all the main parties have been invited, and so far we have had confirmations from the Lib Dem, Labour and Green Party hopefuls. We’ll update the listing on our events page as we get confirmation of all the names who will attend.

Our last hustings in 2019 proved to be one of our most well attended and exciting events.
