INTERVIEWS: Beyond Radio visits Lancaster City Council Community Day in Hala

Beyond Radio visited the Lancaster City Council Community Day at Hala in Lancaster and chatted to people from some of the other organisations who came along.

The event was held on the green near Hala Hill on Thursday August 18 from 10am to 2pm.

It was an opportunity for local council tenants to share their views and get access to information and advice.

There were also many stalls from local community organisations and plenty of family fun activities too.

Organisations on hand included Lancaster Methodist Church, Lancaster District CVS (Community & Voluntary Solutions), Lancaster District Food Justice Partnership, Food Futures, Lancashire Fire and Rescue, Lancaster City Council community hub, Independent Living and dog warden service, Lancaster YMCA, Citizens' Advice, Red Rose Recovery, Lancashire County Council Safe Trader Scheme, Lancashire Volunteer Partnership, North Lancashire and South Cumbria Breast Screening Programme and NHS teams carrying out health checks and Covid vaccinations.

Beyond Radio's Duncan Moore and Greg Lambert played music and made announcements, with support from Luke Edmondson and Nathan Hill. The Beyond Bear was there too!

We also chatted to some of the organisations who were there on Thursday.
