Residents in Wigan borough are being asked to share their views on the Wigan Deal as part of a project looking at how democracy works in different towns and cities across Europe.

The Wigan Deal is an informal agreement between the council and residents to work together to create a better borough.

To better understand residents’ experiences of The Deal, People’s Voice Media and the Community Reporter network are hosting a series of storytelling sessions where people can share their experiences of The Deal and listen to other people’s experiences.

There are three workshops being held week commencing 21st February:

• Workshop 1: 2pm – 4pm, Monday 21st February 2022, Wigan Library, Wigan Life Centre, The Wiend, Wigan, WN1 1NH. 


• Workshop 2: 4:00pm – 5:30pm, Tuesday 22nd February 2022, Online via Zoom. 


• Workshop 3: 2pm – 4pm, Friday 25th February, Education Room at Leigh Town Hall, Market Street, Leigh, WN7 1DY. 


For further information contact Hayley (who’ll be facilitating the sessions) on hayley@peoplesvoicemedia.co.uk

Registration will stay open until 2:30pm on 17th February.

Refreshments will be provided and travel expenses up £10 are available.

The sessions are part of the EUARENAS project that is looking at how democracy works in different towns and cities across Europe.
