Independents in March believe it’s time for change and call open meeting to attract more candidates

TWO March residents who are to contest seats at the Fenland District Council elections in May will hold an open meeting to promote their campaign.

Robert Skoulding, son of late Councillor Peter Skoulding MBE and owner of SnowMountain Enterprises, and Reg Kemp, former City of Ely Councillor, will host the meeting on Wednesday March 10 from 6.30pm at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel in March.

The pair have invited the public to join them and “exchange views in an informal atmosphere” as they are “seriously concerned about the direction and structure of local government in Fenland, and the impending massive cuts to services.”

The meeting also aims to attract prospective candidates from the Fenland region and will be the first step towards the elections on Thursday May 5.

Independent candidates, Skoulding and Kemp, will be fighting for the March West and March East Wards respectively, forming an alliance in their pursuit for victory.
