St Peter’s Church Centre, in St Peter's Road, Maidenhead, hosted the first of five planned EU referendum debates on Tuesday.
A total of 35 people turned out to listen to prospective Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate Tony Hill, supporting remaining in the EU, and IT business owner Matthew Shaw, supporting leaving it, debate the issues.
Mr Hill championed the benefits of EU membership and urged the audience to think of their children’s future opportunities.
Mr Shaw said that global issues, rather than European issues, would be more important and something other than the EU’s structure was needed, before the audience asked questions and made statements.
Mr Shaw said: “Both Tony Hill and myself want to see friendly, honest debate in this campaign.”
