Northampton Bangladeshi Association Summer Fair
On 15th July 2018, Minara Hannan attended the Northampton Bangladeshi Association Summer Fair.
Talking about the event Minara said: “It has been an absolute pleasure to attend the Northampton Bangladeshi Association Summer Fair with my Daughter. I have been looking forward to attending the event to meet local people. Having worked with local Charity Organisations previously, I felt it was important to raise awareness of the legal services I am able to offer to the local Bangladeshi community.”
Minara had a wonderful day, and the weather was great too. NBA staff were very accommodating and supportive. The day was thoroughly entertaining with live music, lots of activities for the adults and the children, and delicious homemade food was available too from a variety of stalls.
Through the support of the NBA staff, Minara was able to offer free immigration advice on the day. She thoroughly enjoyed meeting individual community members and dealing with their immigration enquiries, as well as family matters. Some of the community members explained how difficult it is for them to travel out of town in order to seek guidance on simple matters such as obtaining a travel visa. They were delighted to learn such services are now available locally, and in the language they speak including Bengali, Hindi and Urdu.
It was apparent from the conversations with people at the event that the local community are using out of town services for matters relating to immigration and family for cultural and linguistic barrier reasons. Minara hopes being involved in the event helped people to realise, such services are now available from their local law firm; Tollers Solicitors. In addition, bilingual Solicitors are also available to assist clients on a one to one basis.
Having the opportunity of meeting the local people directly at the event, and after having discussions with other valuable community leaders such as Anjona Roy from Northamptonshire Rights and Equality Council and Mr Latif and his team who are from the NBA management committee, gave Minara valuable insight into the needs and the difficulties of the local community with regards to accessing legal advice and guidance.
In light of this, it was made know to the community through the event that Minara would be delighted to accommodate enquiries relating to Immigration and Family matters either at the NBA centre or at any other confidential place, at a time suitable to them.
Being an experienced Immigration and Family Solicitor Minara specialises in the following immigration matters:
