Action groups will take place at the Salvation Army Priory Centre on January 30 from 1pm to 3pm, February 1 from 1pm to 3pm and Feburary 2 from 10am to noon.

Councillor Keith Rawlingson, chair of the council’s South-East Area Committee, said: “Anyone who has been the victim of a loan shark should report this in confidence; they can get help and action can be taken against the loan shark.”
