Next Dialstone Lane "Good Society" Meeting — 11th July — starting at 10.30 a.m.
Dialstone Lane Methodist Church is organising another "Good Society" meeting. We ask how local government can help us work towards a "good society" and we invite you to debate with four local councillors about how to do this. We also plan to make opportunities for you to discuss with other participants.
