Locality ’16: Fringes and sugeries

Surgeries are ME time: when you can speak to an expert for advice on an issue that’s on your mind.

Surgery sessions

Legal advice – with Sarah Patrice, Anthony Collins Solicitors

Sarah will answer your legal queries on legal structures, board issues, governance arrangements and community asset transfer. If there is another legal query that you have then please do ask; if Sarah doesn’t know the answer, she can probably find out for you!
