Gaby Hardwicke is pleased once again to sponsor the Ian Gow Memorial Cup. Family Law Partner Giles Robinson will chair this public-speaking competition for Year 9 students in Eastbourne and Willingdon.
The event, now in its third year, is hosted by the town’s former MP, Caroline Ansell, and was set up in memory of former Eastbourne MP, Ian Gow, who was murdered by the IRA in 1990.
This year’s guest of honour is the Right Honourable John Bercow MP, the Speaker of the House of Commons. Mr Bercow will judge the competition alongside members of Eastbourne Speakers Club (of which Giles is also a member) who will, once again, be providing invaluable support.
This year’s competition takes place at The Birley Centre, 4 Carlisle Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4EF, on Thursday 19 October at 4:30pm for 5pm. The public are welcome without charge.
