On Sunday the 24th of November, local MP, Mike Freer, held an informal public meeting for the Polish community at St Edward the Confessor Church Hall in Golders Green. The meeting was an opportunity for the community to raise local issues directly with Mike Freer, and a general discussion was held about the differences between British and Polish political cultures.
Commenting after the event, Mike said “Barnet is a diverse borough and I’m keen to hear from as many residents as possible. We had an interesting discussion about the Polish community and the positive contribution they have made to life here in Finchley & Golders green. I would urge any of my Polish constituents to get in touch should they have any issues they would like to raise”.
The event is part of a programme to encourage Barnet's diverse communities to integrate into our civic society. Mike Freer will hold other similar events in the future, please contact his Parliamentary office for further details.
