On Thursday 1st June 7.30 – 9.30pm there will be an election debate for local working parents at the new Bishopston Library.
The event will give parents the opportunity to ask candidates from the major political parties questions about how they will be supporting working parents if elected.
The aim is that each parent will leave the debate being more able to make an informed decision at next week’s election and vote for the party that they feel best supports their family.
Spaces are limited to 40 people and the aim is that everyone – regardless of political allegiance, profession, gender and race – is well represented.
Topics to be discussed will likely include funding for schools, free childcare for preschools, tax and benefit allowances for working parents, tuition fees and more.
The event is being organised by The Village Hall, a new co-working and events space in Bishopston for working parents which aims to bring like-minded people together and relieve the boredom and loneliness of working from home.
The Village Hall is currently looking for a suitable location to start running some trial pop ups and in the meantime is holding events for working parents such as the election debate on 1st June.
All are welcome at the election debate for working parents. You can find Bishopston Library at 100a Gloucester Road, BS7 8BN.
