2020 is the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims' leaving Plymouth for America and I want this City to be at the heart of the Celebration. I have already met with the Culture secretary and he is backing our plans for this project. I want to use this occassion to help boost our regional economic growth, attracting tourists to Plymouth and bringing more jobs into the City.
I will campaign tirelessly to make sure that we take our story to the heart of Government. I look forward to helping many cultural aspects of our city join together to celebrate such a monumental occasion as we continue to celebrate the importance of Plymouth in the story of the Mayflower.
