European Referendum – are you in or out?
If you’ve been following the build up to the EU Referendum with keen interest, then this event could be right up your street.
On Friday 3 June, the University is hosting a debate between two well-known local politicians for each side of the In/Out argument.
The debate will also feature three ‘expert’ speakers, who will be there to inform people objectively about the wider business, economic and legal issues at stake - as well as how an outcome either way might affect a rural area like the Cotswolds.
The speakers will be:
Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, MP for the Cotswolds (out)
Paul Hodgkinson, Gloucestershire County Councillor (in)
John Askew, Partner at St James’s Place
Gillian Ford, Senior Lecturer in EU at the University of Gloucestershire
John Mortimer, SW Regional Director of the Countryside Land and Business Association
The debate will start at 7.30pm in the Boutflour Hall.
For anyone who would like to attend, you can get your tickets from the Wilts & Gloucestershire Standard office at 74 Dyer Street, Cirencester, GL7 2PW – you’ll be asked to make a 50p donation, which will go towards Cirencester Housing for Young People.
