• Image for Event - Pies and Passion - Career Choice in Brexit Britain
    Article: Nov 22, 2017
    By John Shoesmith

    Members and guests are invited to this social event. 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.

The guest speaker was long time Liberal and former Leeds City Councillor and MP Michael Meadowcroft and around thirty Liberal Democrats from across Derbyshire had crowded into the back room of The Grapes Inn in Belper to hear him speak… but first there was pie, and very tasty it was too, with plenty to go round.
