The Chamber is pleased to present an opportunity to meet with Peter Heaton-Jones, MP for North Devon.
This is your chance to engage with Peter in a relaxed environment over a drink and nibbles to discuss any business issues you feel are important for North Devon. Peter is keen to hear the views of those who do business in North Devon to ensure that our voice is heard all the way to Westminster.
Peter Heaton-Jones was elected Member of Parliament for North Devon in 2015. Prior to this he had a twenty year career as a broadcaster, journalist and marketing professional in the UK and Australia. While living Down Under, Peter volunteered to help on an election campaign and caught the political bug, later becoming a policy advisor and press secretary in the New South Wales Parliament. Returning to the UK, Peter worked for the Conservative Party leading up to the 2010 general election. He then managed the constituency office for two southwest MPs, as well as serving as a borough councillor and school governor. In 2015, Peter was appointed to the Environmental Audit Select Committee and in 2016 appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Department of Work and Pensions. His priority is to campaign for a fairer share of funding for infrastructure and services in North Devon. Peter lives in Bishops Nympton.

Whatever your motivation, join us at Lilico's for what is likely to be a lively event.
