David Smith Jewellery signs up

David Smith Jewellery Ltd has signed up to the Brighton Living Wage scheme. We are delighted to welcome another jewellery business to the Living Wage list in Lewes.

How much is enough? Making work pay

U3A free public lecture Tuesday 1st May 2.30pm
Lewes Town Hall Council Chamber 
  
What do we define as an acceptable standard of living? How can we balance the responsibilities of employers and  taxpayers for helping to provide a liveable income for the lowest paid?  

Professor Donald Hirsch will discuss his research on these questions which concern us all in Lewes.

Professor Hirsch is Director of the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University, whose research forms the basis for the real Living Wage adopted by the Living Wage Foundation. In previous roles he was a journalist, an international policy consultant and Poverty Advisor to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Please arrive early – the chamber holds 70 and may fill up. We can keep a limited number of seats if you let us know in advance.
