Mayor of GreaterManchester, Andy Burnham will hold a question time event in the week before every Combined Authority meeting, in the area in which the meeting will be held.
The question time event is on Thursday, May 30 will be held at The Waterside Plaza, Sale.
Partnered with key regional media, the event aims to highlight and answer questions on local issues, posted by members of the public.
This is your opportunity to have a voice on the concerns that matter to you.
- You can attend the session and pre-ask your question when you apply for tickets.
- You can join in remotely by either emailing your questions to [email protected] or through twitter on #AskAndyGM
- You can attend the session and ask your question in person
Over the next twelve months, Andy will call a question time with each local authority in Greater Manchester.
The next event will be held at the Waterside Plaza, Sale, and opens at 7pm. You will need to be seated by 7:20pm as we will be starting promptly at 7:30pm. The session will be live streamed onto @MayorofGM Facebook feed.
We may run out of time to ask all questions that have been raised. If this is the case, we will try and combine similar or related questions together.
You must submit your question for the event by Monday, May 27. These will be sent to the host of the event who will shortlist them in advance to make sure we have a range of subjects covered. The Mayor does not see any questions in advance of the event.
Ticket sales will end on Wednesday, May 29.
I came last month - can I come again?
We're asking that people don't attend more than two question time events in a six month period. This is just so that different people have an opportunity to come along and ask questions. Obviously, if you're not able to attend then you're still more than welcome to watch it online through the live stream and participate via #AskAndyGM on social media.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?No. But the event will be live streamed, so people who attend ideally need to be comfortable to sit for around an hour and half.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
If you are driving to the event, the nearest car park is, Q Park, M33 2AE. The 300 space Q-Park multi-storey car park is within easy walking distance on Broad Road, at which Waterside ticket holders can claim a 20% discount.
The Waterside is just 20 minutes from Manchester city centre by road or Metrolink. It is situated in Sale town centre next to the Bridgewater Canal and directly opposite Sale Metrolink Station. From the M60 exit junction 7 and take the A56. From the station, cross the road and turn left.
What can I bring into the event?Yourself and your questions. You're also welcome to bring your phone in with you, so that you can join in with the questions online at the same time using the hashtag #AskAndyGM. But we do ask you to put it on silent, so not to disturb the live stream.
We will be providing brews to everyone who comes - these will be available from 7pm until the question and answer session starts at 7.30pm.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?If you have any questions about the event itself, feel free to direct them towards - [email protected] - equally, if you think of any questions that you want answering as part of the event, these can also be sent through to the same address.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?You don't need to have it printed, but an electronic copy of the ticket (via your smart phone / tablet) would be great, so that we can tick you off our attendee list and also identify if you are someone who has raised a question in advance.
