TROWBRIDGE Town Council is appealing for help from the local community with the idea of putting on an LGBTQ celebratory event.

The council is investigating if it can put on a Trowbridge pride day in 2019 to celebrate the local LGBTQ community.

Aby Cooper, the council's customer service manager, is holding three focus groups to gather ideas and suggestions for the event.

She is also looking for businesses to sponsor the pride day.

The focus groups dates are on Tuesday, September 18, from 6-8pm, Thursday, September 20, from 2-4pm and Monday, October 1, from 7-9pm at Trowbridge Civic Centre.
