South West Beds MP Andrew Selous will be in Eaton Bray on Friday evening delivering a talk about a local trust that aims to strengthen marriages and family relationships.

He'll be talking about the South Bedfordshire Community Family Trust, a voluntary group that he was involved in setting up.

Mr Selous said: "As a rough rule of thumb, I find that in my constituency surgeries about three or four of every constituency cases brought to me have relationship breakdown as the cause, whether the issue brought to me is about benefits, the Child Support Agency, housing or health.

"There is increasing evidence from around the UK and other parts of the world that programmes to help support and equip people to make a success of their marriages and family relationships are beginning to have an impact.

Mr Selous' talk will be to Eaton Bray Churches Together at 7.30pm at Eaton Bray Methodist Church.
