The effects on communities and employment post-Brexit will be discussed at a meeting in Long Sutton on Tuesday (March 6).

Rev Dr Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, will be attending the public meeting from 10.30am-3pm at St Mary’s Church Hall.

Organised by the Social Issues in South Lincolnshire group, there will also be a talk by Ian Lings, Vice Chair of the Campaign for Protec­tion of Rural England.

The group’s facilitator and coordinator Father Jonathan Sibley, said: “We had a very successful meeting in October and two working groups have been created, looking at sustainable communities after Brexit and employment issues.”

The working groups, which are co-ordinated by Ivan Annibal of Rose Re­generation Consultancy and Rev Canon Alan Robson, Diocesan Agricultural Chaplain, will be giving presentations on the day.

Photographer Rose Beddington, who created photographic exhibition ‘Rural Lincolnshire Life’ will also present, and Dr Williams will talk about ‘Human Dignity and Human Worth in the Market Place.’

Assistant Chief Constable Craig Naylor, of Lincolnshire Police, is expected to attend.

Father Sibley added: “We have had interest from The Church Times (newspaper) and the Cabinet Office” (regarding the initiative).
