Councillors will be holding an in-person advice session this weekend to residents who want to raise any issues with their local area.

Darwen East Ward Labour Councillors Jane Oates and Katrina Fielding, and Darwen West Ward Labour Councillors Brian Taylor, Dave Smith and Stephanie Brookfield will be holding an advice surgery in Darwen Library this Saturday, September 18, from 10:30am to 11:30am.

Darwen Town Councillors Eileen Entwistle (Darwen East) and Jonathan Hamer (Darwen West) will also be in attendance.

This is only the second in-person surgery to be held following the lifting of coronavirus restrictions and therefore residents are encouraged to attend to speak with their council representatives face-to-face. 

A spokesperson for the town council said: "Residents with any borough or town council related queries or questions please come along.

"All welcome. No appointment necessary."
