7.30 Friday 20th April 2018 at the United Reformed Church, Watling Street
Rosie Duffield, the MP for the Canterbury district, has agreed to talk to a public meeting organised by the Canterbury Society on 20th April. Her topic will be “New Year, New Canterbury” and we have asked her to give us her views on some of the issues facing the city now and in the future. She will give a brief talk but says that she is really happier with question-and-answer sessions. So do come along with your questions for her.
Rosie was elected as MP for Canterbury in June 2017 and is a member of the Women and Equalities Select Committee. She has lived in Canterbury for 19 years, has worked in education and writes a regular column for the Kentish Gazette.
The Canterbury Society is strictly non-party political but is very much engaged with all debates related to the quality of life in the city. In 2013 the Society worked with other residents’ groups to produce a Residents’ Vision for the Future of our City. In 2014 the Society invited Julian Brazier, the former MP, to give a talk entitled, ‘My Vision for the Future of Canterbury’. The Canterbury Society is about to begin working with other residents’ groups to prepare a New Vision for our city. So this event will be opportunity to discuss with our MP the hopes, fears and concerns of local people.
Everyone will be very welcome. Refreshments will be provided and the bus station and city centre car parks are very near the meeting place.
