    Politics and Passion - Land Value Tax
    Thursday 8th March 2018

    Members and their guests are invited to a social evening at Sir Barnes Wallis at Ripley on Thursday March 8th at 7.30pm. Our guest will be William Davison, who will be speaking on the topic of Land Value Tax.

    William Davison will talk about Land Value Tax, a topic that has been central to Liberal thinking since the time of Lloyd George. Land Value Tax would provide the community with a share of the huge financial gains that can be made by simply owning land. It is especially relevant at a time when young people struggle to afford a home, and when wealth is so unfairly shared.

    Members and guests are invited to this social event on Thursday 30th November. Our Pies and Passion evenings are designed to be both motivating and informative, with topics of current interest.

    Roger Harrison, who has considerable experience in business and international trade, will examine the likely impact of Brexit on a range of industries and occupations and give his views on potential winners and losers. This is highly topical and should interest all but be of special interest for anyone choosing/changing a career. We hope to start a lively debate.

    "Youth Work Saves Lives - Now We Must Save Youth Work"

    Please join us for our chaired panel discussion on the future of Youth Services at our Regional Conference on Saturday 21st October at Southwell Minster School

    The Youth Service, across the country, has seen devastating cuts in recent years, as have youth services more widely. Research has shown that around £387m has been cut from Youth Services by local authorities since 2010. Councils, in turn, blame Central Government for this by referencing the reduced budgets they're having to deal with.
