Worcestershire County Council will be joining in the Sanders Park 50th Anniversary Celebrations in Bromsgrove this Sunday, for its final resident roadshow of the summer.

Nearly 600 people have visited the council's stand across the summer roadshows programme, talking to staff and councillors about a range of local issues and taking part in the range of activities available.

 

This Sunday, the roadshow team will be available to speak to Bromsgrove 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.

 

Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Transformation and Commissioning at Worcestershire County Council, Councillor Karen May, said: "The summer roadshows this year have provided 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're really pleased with the levels of engagement the stand has received and the conversations we've had across the summer so far, and we're looking forward carrying on the conversation and hearing from Bromsgrove residents on Sunday."

 

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

 

The County Council has held five summer roadshows across July and August, visiting Redditch Green Fair, Bewdley Riverside Market, The Worcester Show, Tenbury Countryside Show, and Pershore Plum Festival on their summer roadshow circuit so far, with the sixth and final stop being this weekend in Bromsgrove.

 

The Worcestershire County Council roadshow will be at the Sanders Park 50th Anniversary Celebrations in Bromsgrove on Sunday (16 September) from 12pm to 4:30pm.
