Worcestershire County Council will be at the Worcester Show this weekend to speak to residents in the fourth of its Resident Roadshows this summer.

The County Council has already held roadshows at Redditch Green Fair, Bewdley Riverside Market and Tenbury Countryside Show during July and August.

 

A total of 452 people have visited the council's stand at the summer roadshows to talk to staff and councillors and take part in the range of activities available.

 

Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Transformation and Commissioning at Worcestershire County Council, Councillor Karen May, said: "It has been great to engage with so many people during the first two roadshows this summer and we hope that residents will visit our stand at the Worcester Show.

 

"It's a great opportunity for us to interact with people and discuss their thoughts on the area in which they live and the county as a whole. We are really looking forward to hearing from residents in Worcester."

 

As part of the council's summer roadshow, councillors and council staff will be visiting each of the six districts in the county to speak to people about issues in their area.

 

This Sunday, the roadshow team will also speak to Worcester residents about the way they think the council budgets should be spent, with feedback from these conversations used to inform the budget planning process in the future.

 

The Worcestershire County Council roadshow will be at the Worcester Show in Gheluvelt Park, Worcester on Sunday (12 August) from 10am to 5pm.
