Falkirk residents asked for thoughts on Brexit
Falkirk residents are being asked to share their views on Britain leaving the European Union.
Alliance Scotland are holding an event in the town this evening – considering Brexit and its impact on employment, health and the local community.
Cabinet Minister Fiona Hyslop will be taking part in the discussion.
Irene Oldfather’s from the group:
“The event gives local residents across Falkirk a chance to hear firsthand from ministers as to where we are in terms of negotiations and to give local communities an opportunity to think about the opportunities that are affecting them – and to have their say.”
“European funding goes towards projects such as low-carbon funding and e-bikes in the town centre – where’s the funding coming from after Brexit? The EU also provides money for the European Social Fund – improving employability and boosting social inclusion.”
The event takes place at Falkirk Trinity Church between 6:15pm and 8:15pm – to register phone 0141 404 0231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
