Wickham and Knowle election hustings are open to all candidates, the Parish Council organising them has reiterated.

Rejoin EU candidate Edward Dean wrote to the Meon Valley Times complaining that he hadn’t been invited.

But Councillor Craig Manuel, Chairman of Wickham and Knowle Parish Council, said: “The hustings is open to all candidates and invites were sent to all candidates last week.  

“However, there was small delay in the invite reaching Edward as we had to send his invite via a central email address as we did not have his direct contact details.

“However, I have now personally spoken to Edward and he is looking forward to attending the husting at Knowle Village Hall on Friday.”

Edward Dean said: “It seems that it was all down to my admin people not passing an email on to me. I’ve spoken to Councillor Craig Manuel and it is all sorted out now.”
