Have your say event next week:

You are invited to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the area with members of North East Lincolnshire Council’s Cabinet at Grimsby Town Hall between 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday October 22nd.

The event will be on a first come, first served drop-in basis, with note takers on hand to support Cabinet members in forwarding key issues to service areas.
