Veteran MP Frank Field returns to Sherborne as part of our series of events exploring the EU Referendum. He has long campaigned for a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU writing in his blog in 2013: the majority of the country will hopefully make their views known in a second vote, which should be held once we have a much clearer idea about what future shape the EU is likely to take.  Our aim, surely, should be to change the EU.
