A well-attended meeting at the United Chirch in Bridport was led by Lindsey Fielder Cook. Representatives of our political parties -Kelvin Clayton, Edward Morello and Andrew Wyatt each gave excellent presentations. All four speakers fielded questions and comments in the Q&A session.
Chris Loder was asked but was not able to come at relatively short notice.
The evening was introduced by Joe Burlington who organised the event, along with Sustainable Bridport.
