She’ll be taking part in an informal interview with Caroline Kay who is Chief Executive of Bath Preservation Trust. The event will be held at St Michael’s Without in Bath on Wednesday, April 18th at 7pm.

A successful businesswoman and champion of British Industry, Emma is most recognised for her trademark hand-decorated kitchen pottery business.

Now employing over 300 people, she has refused to outsource manufacturing to low wage economies abroad and her company makes all of its pottery in Stoke on Trent, reviving these traditional skills.

The evening will take the form of an informal interview, chaired by Caroline Kay, Chief Executive of BPT. Topics will include the green landscape setting of Bath’s World Heritage Site and threats from development plus CPRE’s own national campaigns ‘the wrong homes in the wrong places’ and ‘roads to nowhere’ which also challenge Green Belt development.

In this centenary year of women getting the vote, Emma will also look at women who campaign and share some of her own relevant experiences of countryside campaigning.
