Purley debating society gets all political before local elections

Local elections must be coming, because the Purley and Coulsdon Debating Society has gone all political with its topic for April.

As the event, on Monday April 16, is being staged in true-blue Coulsdon, it is probably unsurprising that the motion is: “It’s time for Croydon to come back to the Conservatives”. Some might wonder whether it has ever gone away.

The motion is proposed by Tim Pollard, the leader of the Tory group at the Town Hall.

Opposing the motion is the Labour councillor, Andrew Pelling.

Speakers from the floor are encouraged, and there’s even tea and biscuits at half-time.

The debate takes place from 8pm at the Old Coulsdon Centre, Coulsdon Road  Grange Park, Old Coulsdon CR5 1EH. Entry is free, though donations towards costs are welcome.
