Churches Together in Chandlers Ford is organising a debate on the proposed Alternative Vote system. Leading national speakers from each side of the argument will provide a valuable opportunity for local people to better understand the issues.
The date for the event is Thursday 28 April at 7.30 p.m. and it will be held at The Dovetail Centre, Methodist Church, Winchester Road, Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh, SO53 2GJ.
This meeting is open to all and promises to be a lively, engaging and above all informative meeting.
Leading the debate for the No Campaign will be Charlotte Vere, Financial Director and key strategist of “No To AV”.
And for the Yes campaign Jonathan Bartley, senior spokesperson and co-chair for “Yes! to Fairer Votes”.
The debate will be hosted by Francis Davis, columnist, entrepreneur and Ministerial Adviser on the Big Society and Decentralisation.
Tony Richmond, Chair of Churches Together in Chandlers Ford said
“This referendum is arguably the biggest issue in British politics for a generation or more but many people are still unclear about the proposed system. We are delighted to provide this opportunity for people to find out the information they need. We look forward to hearing what Charlotte and Jonathan have to say.”
There is no charge for attending but there will be opportunity for people to make a contribution toward the costs.
