Mind the Gap: Should local businesses fill in the holes left by government cutbacks? With the government’s spending cuts affecting everyone in our city – whether it’s the arts, education, museums or the voluntary sector - there’s never been a more important time to have your say.
Can we just sit and watch as the funding drips away? Or should Brighton & Hove businesses come forward to invest in the gaps left in our local community?
Do you feel strongly about how you would like to see this done? Or about who should contribute, who should get the money, and how much? Does it set a dangerous precedent and let the government off the hook? Or maybe the Brighton and Hove business community would do a better job of running local projects than the government ever has?
It’s your chance to hear key people give their opinions - and maybe influence them with your own - in an evening of lively, entertaining and enlightening debate. This event is the first of the Chamber’s new series of debates in 2011. They aim to be friendly and interactive discussions where you can vote with your feet as well as your voice and then stay on to get involved in some informal networking and make valuable contacts.
And don’t forget, by letting your Chamber of Commerce know what you think, you’re helping it to represent you better as the voice of business in Brighton & Hove.
