Anyone thinking of standing for election this year is urged to attend a series of free workshops.
The Fylde Civic Awareness Group (FCAG) wants to inspire people to make a difference to their communities.
Chairman Jon Harrison said: “Anyone can attend our free workshops.
“We are not a party political organisation, and anyone who is thinking about standing for election is welcome to hear the inside story about what’s involved.”
The series of four evening workshops will take place between January 8 and March 12, starting at 7.30pm at the Glendower Hotel on North Promenade in St Annes.
Speakers will include a former leader of Fylde Council and senior elected members.
People can simply turn up on the night or for more details ring (01253) 728047 or visit FCAG’s website at www.fylde.biz
