The Hastings and Rye Green party will be hosting a discussion meeting on Wednesday, May 18.

Green MEP Keith Taylor, who recently helped launch the Greener In referendum campaign, will be there to discuss what he feels are the benefits of being in the EU.

He will also answer audience questions.

“I am campaigning for the South East to vote Remain because I believe that the best way to tackle the collective challenges the UK and Europe face is to work together on shared solutions,” he said.

Mr Taylor intends to highlight issues such as climate change, the health of our oceans and air pollution as they are ‘particularly relevant here in the South East’.

“But, crucially, they are issues that show no respect for borders and require collaborative and cooperative solutions,” he added.

Mr Taylor has been an MEP for six years and currently sits on the committee for transport and tourism and the committee on environment, public health and food safety.

The meeting will be held in Room GOO2A at Sussex Coast College, Hastings, from 7pm to 8.30pm, all are welcome to attend.
