Chris Plant, director of Burton & District Chamber, said: “We will be hosting a political debate inviting prominent party candidates and the current MP for Burton and Uttoxeter to partake in debate with the local business community.

“The event will allow the local business community to raise questions to candidates about issues they wish to see addressed which affect their business and the local economy.

“The chamber will continue to rise to the challenge of sustaining the economic resilience our business community has demonstrated, and will persist with enthusiasm to deliver growth.

“We look forward to working with and supporting all of our members in the forthcoming year and ensuring that the chamber remains, quite rightly, as the areas number one support organisation.

“The event is being hosted at Hoar Cross Hall, a Grade II listed stately home retreat in Staffordshire that pairs period style with modern luxury and attentive service.

“At this unique sanctuary, friendly faces are assured, kicking off your shoes is expected and total relaxation is the order of the day.”
