A fourth candidate standing in the parliamentary elections for South Holland will appear at the Spalding Guardian Election 2015 hustings.

Liberal Democrat George Smid is the latest to confirm he will attend the event at the South Holland Centre on St George’s Day, April 23.

The Green Party has also been in touch to say it is in the very final stages of selecting its candidate for South Holland and the Deepings and has asked that we reserve a seat for the line-up. That will bring the total of candidates who will be in the spotlight to answer your questions to five. Also in the line-up is the current MP, Tory John Hayes, UKIP’s David Parsons and Labour’s Matthew Mahabadi.

There has already been an overwhelming response to tickets for the free event, and with 232 seats booked in the first few days there is just gallery space left now.

Residents unable to attend the event need not worry – the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian will be accepting questions for candidates that can be emailed in to be asked on the night.

Tickets, limited to four per person, can be acquired from the South Holland Centre booking office by calling 01775 764777. Doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
