Councillor surgeries are back up and running

It’s been a long time but Beeston and Holbeck Councillors are delighted to be re-starting their face-to-face surgery sessions from the end of October.

The Covid pandemic led to surgeries in this format being cancelled with contact being made either via the telephone or email.  Knowing how important it is to see someone in person to discuss sometimes difficult issues, Councillors Angela Gabriel, Gohar Almass and Andrew Scopes are extremely pleased that they can now offer this service again.

The surgeries will be held on the fourth Friday of each month, starting from Friday 22 October 2021, the sessions will be held at 4pm at the Beeston Community Hub & Library, Town Street and at 5pm at St Matthew’s Community Centre in Holbeck.

Local residents don’t need to make an appointment and can just turn up to speak to their local Councillor, one of whom will be in attendance at each session.

Councillor Angela Gabriel said:

“We are delighted to be able to offer face-to-face surgeries once again, it has been extremely difficult for everyone throughout the pandemic and we have missed the in-person contact that we are used to having with our residents.

“If anyone does have an issue they would like to discuss with us then please do feel free to pop along on one of the Fridays and talk to us, we would love to see you!”
