Earlier this week, Caroline Voaden MEP paid a visit to Poole and Wimborne as part of her working tour of the South West constituency she was elected to represent in the European Parliament in May. Together with Vikki Slade, PPC for Mid Dorset and North Poole, Caroline visited local businesses who held concerns over the future of Brexit.
Their first stop was Ishida in Poole, a company that specialises in producing machinery for the food packaging industry that it primarily exports to other countries. Vikki and Carline spent a great deal of time wtinessing their innovative machines and listening to their concerns about what Brexit may mean for the future, particularly if we were to crash out of the EU without a deal jeopardising our trading relationships with Europe and the rest of the world. Afterwards, they meet with Infinergy in Wimborne who specialise in renewable energy and green technologies of the future, where they learnt about combating climate change and relieving our dependence on oil and gas.
Finally, Caroline was most kind to be the start speaker at an event held at our Wimborne branch hall and to talk to members, supporters and people from Dorset for Europe about her time in the European Parliament and what was happening regarding Brexit across the channel. Her insights were greatly appreciated and well received at what was a most successful and positive event.
