On the Friday 20th July starting at 12 noon in the main hall of Princes Risborough Community Centre, Wades Park beside the swimming pool building, we will be holding a BBC type Question Time with local MP David Lidington. (DL)
You as a member of a U3A are welcome to attend (that includes members from other local U3A branches). There is no need to book but there will be a small entrance fee of £1.
