Pendle Council’s leader has teamed up with Building Bridges’ Talking Lounge for the next Let’s Talk roadshow.

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Leader of Pendle Council, is taking himself on the road every month so that he can discuss local issues with the community.

And the next roadshow is taking place at Victoria Park Pavilion on Tuesday 10 September from 6pm.

It’s part of Building Bridges’ Talking Lounge which brings local people together to tackle local action.

Councillor Iqbal will be joined by Dean Langton, Chief Executive, and Councillor Asjad Mahmood.

He said: “This will be our third roadshow and I’ve enjoyed meeting local people to discuss issues that matter to them.

“Teaming up with Building Bridges is a great opportunity to reach even more people.

“We want you to be confident that we’re working hard on your behalf every day as we continue to make Pendle a great place to live, work and study in.

“We know there’ll be some hot topics from littering, dog fouling and how we’re tackling recycling.

“Whatever the issue or question – come and join us on Tuesday 10 September and Let’s Talk."

Shabaz Ahmed, Community Development Officer, added: “We’re really excited to see the Talking Lounge and Let’s Talk coming together.

“It will provide an open platform for conversation in the comfort of the Victoria Park Pavilion Café.

“It’s a great opportunity for people to access members of the Council and learn about what’s happening in their area, plans for the future and to also bring up any issues they feel need to be discussed.”

The Let’s Talk roadshows take place at different times, days and venues to make sure that anyone who wants to meet with the Council Leader can do so over the coming months.

No appointments are necessary. Come along and have a chat on a first come first served basis.
