MP visits local businesses

3rd November 2017

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown visits Jonjo O’Neill Racing at Jackdaws Castle in Temple Guiting. He met with Edward Gillespie, former Chief Executive of Cheltenham Racecourse, and was taken on a detailed tour of the stables and horses with some interesting conversations with the stable lads and lasses.

Geoffrey said:
"We then went outside to watch some horses on the gallops which was very poignant for me remembering my old point-to-point days. The purpose of my visit was to demonstrate the absolute necessity for the Government to do a Brexit deal which allows sufficient labour to enter from EU countries to support local industries in the Cotswolds such as racing, farming and tourism. Jonjo has about 140 horses in training and employs 50 staff along with providing indirect employment for a similar number of people in the local economy."
 
Later, Geoffrey visited Race Furniture Ltd in Bourton-on-the-Water. This followed a chance meeting with the owner, Stuart Finlater and his sons, William and Ian. Race Furniture manufactures and sells theatre-style seating for many major institutions in the UK.
