The Event will begin at 6.30pm (for the debate to start at 7pm) and is to be chaired by Rachel Craze, Chairman of the NCCT. The BID and NCCT are inviting businesses to the event to offer the opportunity for them to hear the views of candidates or parties standing for election.

Rachel Craze, Chair of NCCT said “we are so pleased to be hosting this event with the BID, it’s a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to come and along and question the parliamentary candidates first hand. We urge businesses to support this event to ensure that we are getting the best support for local businesses and the local economy”.

Kate Cortez, Newquay BID Assistant Manager commented “This is an important event for businesses within the town centre, it’s giving them the chance to make sure they know exactly how the plans of each Parliamentary Candidate will affect Newquay and the town.”
