PRESS RELEASE - January 15th 2014
BUSINESS LEADERS STAGE COTSWOLD QUESTION TIME
Panellists ranging from a UKIP candidate to a female vicar and council leaders will be in for a grilling at a Question Time-style event being run in Winchcombe this month.
The event on Thursday 29th January is being organised by the Winchcombe Business Forum but is open to any residents from the Cotswold market town and its surrounding area.
Six panellists will be taking to the stage for the question and answer and discussion evening that’s being run on a similar format to the popular BBC television programme.
Chaired by Forum Deputy Chairman Claire Thayers, a series of searching questions on a wide-range of issues on a local, regional or national perspective will be put to panellists for their stance and views on the matter.
Steve Meredith, Forum Chairman, said: “This should be quite a lively evening aimed at giving both forum members and townspeople the chance to ask any burning questions they may have of any of the panellists.
“It’s the first time the Forum has run a Question Time evening like this, but Claire our deputy chairman has run similar events in other parts of the country with great success.
“We have asked Forum members to send us any questions they may have, but we will also be taking questions from the public and some from the floor during the evening.”
Question Time comes to Winchcombe on Thursday 29 January - 6.45pm for 7pm at the Methodist Church, High Street Winchcombe.

A new community café is opening its doors in Winchcombe, and is on the lookout for volunteers.
Opening soon in the building which houses the North Cotswolds Food Bank, Simple Things Café will offer a hot meal, cup of tea and a child friendly space to catch up with friends.
The not for profit café has no set menu charges. Instead a recommended donation is given, allowing customers to donate more to help fund the project or to pay what they can afford.
Every penny of profit made will be invested into providing free services, affordable meals and activities for people living in the local area, including things like book clubs, cookery lessons, children's cinema and craft sessions.
To make all this happen the project needs volunteers and there are a number of roles available including bakers, supervisors, activity organisers and all round help. Most importantly volunteers don't need to be Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood style star bakers to apply!
For more information about the volunteer roles and to apply please visit www.simplethingsproject.co.uk, email or call 07843 699351
