Voters should be aware that there will be a mobile unit set up as an alternative to voting at the St James Church lounge. This will be on Aster Chase roadway near its junction with Stopes Brow.
Voting at Longshaw Junior School will now take place at the mobile unit on Park Lee Road between the Hospice entrance and Markazuk Uloom girls entrance before Mowbray Avenue.
