Join our discussion and reflections on how we in and around Salisbury can contribute constructively to the challenges posed by Britain’s intended withdrawal from the European Union.
This will take the form of a panel discussion which will lead into questions and comments from members of a selected audience representing a cross-sector approach to European involvement. We hope to enjoy contributions from representatives from our two twin town committees - Xanten and Saintes - along with representatives from business, political, and community organisations, including schools and colleges. We are particularly mindful of Salisbury’s important scientific community whose work is rooted in international partnerships.
Our aim is to explore ways in which we in Salisbury and District can make a positive contribution to a constructive outcome from changes that many fear will prove challenging to all concerned. We seek a positive international solution to these challenges. We also hope to address the relational aspect of this matter. Many Salisbury people have strong personal friendships with people across the EU, and it is important that the value and strength of these relationships are recognised and supported.
We do also point out that Salisbury was actually initiated in its original form by none less than William the Conqueror and his nephew, who he made the first Bishop of our city. In that sense we are a truly European city!
