The room was filled and we had over one dozen viewers on the live stream.
The link below now takes you to a recording.

In case you need help in identifying the candidates in the rather wide angle picture they are as follows (left to right):

Victoria Collins, Liberal Democrats

Nigel Gardner, Conservative

Paul de Hoest, Green Party

Mark Patten, Social Democrat Party

Rob Wakely, Labour (substituting for the actual candidate)

At the Lectern:

Susan Johnson, Berkhamsted Citizens Association

Liz Carlile, Facilitator

This is the first time we have live streamed a BCA event.  Sound quality and video presence left something to be desired but at least it is on the record in 21st C style.

Pre-event post:
