We announced here that The Preston Social would be presenting an event giving those with an opinion on the future of Preston Bus Station an opportunity to discuss/debate/tweet with a panel of key figures and commentators to share views, answer questions and to amplify the passionate voice of Preston.

The Bus Station conversation is one that has been going on for sometime in digital forums and spaces –

We can now reveal who the panellists are:

Jenni Barrett – UCLan Architecture Lecturer. Researching psychology of collaboration. Foraging insights into culture of architecture. One time landscape architect.

David Coates – Southerner in the North. Journo (@leponline). Yeovil Town fan. I’d rather be Farmer Bill’s cowman.

John Wilson – Weather beaten, wise old owl. Ruffles feathers. A life in construction senior management. Football is my passion. Preston NE my team.

Councillor John Potter – Born in Whitehaven, Cumbria, Councillor John Potter moved to Preston to study in 2001. He became active in Preston politics in 2005 and have since stood and campaigned in a variety of ward seats. John was elected as a councillor for Cadley Ward on September 16 2010 in a by-election and was re-elected in May 2012 with more votes and a greater share of the 44% turnout. John is a voting Federal Conference rep for the Liberal Democrats as well as the secretary of the Wyre and Preston North local party and campaign coordinator for the Fulwood and Rural areas.

This is a great opportunity to have your views heard and speak to those who have a real interest in the bus station
