yles Brandreth speaks at the Peterborough Ambassadors' dinner


More than 250 leading figures in local business and civic life heard praise for Peterborough's achievements and a vote of confidence in its future from TV personality and former MP Gyles Brandreth at the Peterborough Ambassadors' dinner.

He told guests at the black-tie event at the East of England Showground organised by Greater Peterborough Investment Agency (GPIA) that he had been greatly impressed by what he had seen and learned of the city during his visit. He said: "Peterborough is magic. Its transformation over the past three decades into a prosperous, modern city has been great. Its potential for the future is tremendous."

He paid tribute to the people of the city, telling guests: "It is evident that you like living and working in Peterborough and that you like being together."

The dinner was held to thank the more than 200 city business people who are Peterborough Ambassadors and Business Partners of GPIA for their work over the past year in promoting the city to their business contacts throughout the world. It was sponsored by national regeneration agency English Partnerships.

GPIA chief executive Gloria Milne said: "There is a real buzz here tonight which reflects the dynamism of the city. There is a great deal happening in Peterborough and there will be a great deal more happening over the year ahead. The Peterborough Ambassadors can play a major role in delivering that message to the business community throughout the world."
