Calderdale Compass

Public Meeting: Brexit - What Next?

Stubbing Wharf, Hebden Bridge, 7pm

Our parliament is in deadlock over Brexit - some want to remain, some want no deal, some want a Norway style deal, and others want a referendum on the final deal.

Can we unite to stop a destructive Tory Brexit and their attempts to use it to turn the UK into a low tax, low regulation economy, which will have devastating consequences for our public services and hard won basic rights?

Come and join us for our next public meeting to hear local speakers discuss arguments for and against Brexit, plus Compass proposals for a Citizen's Assembly to help ensure all voices are heard and help find a way forward.

The history of farming in the industrial Pennines

Dr. Stephen Caunce

So how was the feeding of ever larger populations achieved on land described in Tudor times as 'a great waste and moor'?
