Friends of Thetford Forest Save Our Forests Campaign Update - General Election 2015 Campaign Letter to Candidates Replies

In the run-up to the General Election in 2015, Friends of Thetford Forest decided to find out, and let members know, what the local candidates standing for Parliament thought about our forests and how they would protect them for the nation in perpetuity.

To do this FoTF drafted a letter that was sent to all the local candidates. Any responses received were published on the FoTF website and updates were posted to the FoTF Facebook page and the @fotf Twitter feed.

You can view their responses here, please click on the candidates' name to view their response (if there is no link we did not recieve a response).
