The meet-the-mayor surgeries had to be postponed at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. But now, Mr Abrahams is keen to get out in the community again.

You will be able to turn up at any of the monthly sessions to talk to the mayor directly about day-to-day issues or concerns in your locality.

He would also love to hear about the good work that community groups and individuals are carrying out.
