Changes at Gladstone Connect
After more than five years as the Centre Manager, Mr Ghulam Shabbir is retiring.
Shabbir has been a popular and well-known figure at the Allama Iqbal Centre, working with a wide range of local community organisations to make the Centre a successful and important facility at the heart of the community.
Thank you Shabbir - you'll be a hard act to follow...
From today, his role is taken on by Richard Ferris. Richard is well-known as a local city councillor for Park ward, and is committed to raising awareness of what the Centre offers and seeing it used by a diverse range of organisations and community groups, both locally and from across the city.
When he's not at the Centre or working as a councillor, Richard is a very keen sportsman and can be found running, cycling or swimming at The Lido. He's married with a young daughter.
