Residents of Shard End Ward are invited to the next of our regular public meetings, which is being held at Timberley Academy, tomorrow evening (16 November), starting at 7pm.  

The meetings are another chance to find out about the work your local Councillors have been doing over the past weeks and for residents to have their say about the issues that matter most to our community.
