Published Friday 20th of May 2016 09:05:20 AM

Mayfield School played host to a debate on Britain’s membership in the EU on Thursday (12th May), ahead of the EU referendum in June. The event attracted an audience of around 100 girls, teachers, parents and members of the local community. Sir Tim Chessells, who has worked for the Government as Chairman of a Regional Health Authority and then The Legal Aid Board, chaired the debate between Gerard Fox, former member of the Conservative Party, Nick Hopkinson, former director of Wilton Park both want to remain in the EU and David Wilkson, of the Bruges Group, and Nigel Jones, UKIP, who are in favour of leaving the EU. The four speakers opened the debate by each individually presenting their arguments before taking questions from the floor. Head of Politics at Mayfield School, Ms Bryan, said: “The ensuing discussion was lively and at times heated but most importantly helped clarify the views of the audience and in some cases led them to change their minds!”
