TV News covers the call for Whitby Town Poll – broadcast on Fri 27 Apr 2018

This Friday both BBC and ITV regional TV News programmes plan to show their interviews about Whitby’s Town Poll. The interviews were recorded in and around Whitby earlier this week. The Town Poll will ask: ‘Do you want to leave Scarborough Borough Council and North Yorkshire County Council, to become part of the new Tees Valley Combined Authority instead?’

Camera crews from both of our regional TV News programmes were in Whitby this week to interview several local people, including John Freeman, a former Mayor of Whitby Town Council. They say the Television News items will be shown this Friday 27 April 2018 during the early evening regional news: on ITV at 6pm and on BBC at 6.30pm.

The Town Poll MUST be held between the 8th and the 25th of May 2018, so there isn’t much time to spread the word as widely as possible. It will be organised by Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) but SBC has not yet decided exactly when it will happen…
