First EU debate in Beeston

Broxtowe’s first European Union Referendum debate took place in Beeston tonight at the Parish Church. A range of panelists, including Chris Barnett, a futures specialist, and the BBC’s John Hess, tried to help the audience make sense of the referendum and the issues involved. A lively debate ensued with plenty of questions and comments from the audience.

A straw poll gave ‘Remain’ the lead, but around 20% of the audience were yet to make their minds up.

The first of many in the local area no doubt.
