Suspension of Hustings Events 

***Please note, the event has been rescheduled for 1st June – full info HERE***

Dear Candidate/Chamber Member,


As you will know that following the tragic atrocity in Manchester, all political parties have suspended their election campaigns including hustings events. As a result of this and our mutual respect to honour the victims of the Manchester attack, the Chamber Hustings event taking place on Thursday 25th May 2017 will now be suspended.


I appreciate your willingness to attend and engage in the debate and discussion and the Chamber Team will now work with the candidates in our region to explore future opportunities for events & business discussions. I will, of course, keep you updated on any developments and future events.


I hope you will join me in taking the time to reflect on the Manchester attack and to those families who have been affected.


Yours Sincerely,


Lesley Benfield

Chief Executive
