Blair Gulland, Chairman of Gullands solicitors will also speak on some of the legal preparations rural businesses need to consider as Brexit approaches.

The event runs from 12:30 until 3:30pm on Thursday 12th July 2018 at Kenward House, Kenward Rd, Yalding, ME18 6AH.

Helen Grant said 'As the uncertainties of the Brexit process move along, the impact upon farming and the rural economy is a major issue here in Kent. Rural communities also face some unique challenges from criminal gangs and individuals and I wanted to provide an opportunity for our people to hear from those in charge and air their views and questions'.
