It’s good to talk

Chesterfield residents have the opportunity to learn more about people from different backgrounds and cultures in the borough in an event organised by the Chesterfield Equality and Diversity Forum.

The forum, supported by Chesterfield Borough Council, is hosting the Talk20 event on Thursday 14 November from 10am to 1pm at St Thomas’s Centre, Chatsworth Road, Brampton. A free lunch is included.

Representatives will be on speaking from the following groups:

  • Chesterfield African Caribbean Community Association
  • Derbyshire Gypsy Liaison Group
  • Asian Association of Chesterfield and North Derbyshire
  • Chesterfield and North Derbyshire Muslim Women’s Group.

Each of these community groups will offer a 20 minute workshop focussing on the contribution they make to the community.

Councillor Sharon Blank, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for governance, said: “We have received an extremely positive response to the previous training and information sessions organised by the Chesterfield Equality and Diversity Forum and I’d encourage people to come along and learn more about these community groups.”

The event is free to attend but places are limited.

To book a place, please email Katy Marshall or Allison Potter or call (01246) 345247.
