About Atiqul

The Residents of St Edmund and Milford in Salisbury have made history by choosing their first British Bangladeshi Councillor in Wiltshire! And what's more Amazing is that this is the ward in which I first started my business back in 1997. I grew up in London and came to Salisbury as a work experience and never looked back...

I'm an active member of the local community and have been involved in various charity fund raising events. Through running a long-standing local business I have shown strong communication skills, working with other businesses and the public. Through running several local charity fundraising events I have built up strong teamwork and leadership skills. Over the years I have always put honesty and customer satisfaction first, which has given me the building blocks to expand further.
