Come and speak to the county council down by the riverside as the Resident Roadshows move to Evesham

The WCC Resident Roadshow Stand at Asparafest 2016 Published Tuesday, 9th July 2019

Worcestershire County Council’s annual programme of Resident Roadshows for this summer is now well underway.

Residents from Evesham will have the opportunity to talk to councillors and officers about the services that the Council provide, as the roadshow moves to the town’s River Boat Festival on the 13th July.

The appearance at the festival will be the latest in a series of summer roadshows that the Council is holding across the county, following on from events in Malvern and Redditch and its surrounding villages.

Councillors will be joined by Council staff to answer questions on local issues and to explain more about a new company, Worcestershire Children First, which is launching 1 October 2019 to provide children’s services for Worcestershire.

Experts will be available to give advice on how best to plan for the future and to continue to live independently for longer into older age.

There will also be information on how the Evesham Transport Strategy is progressing, and on Worcestershire’s newest train station, Worcestershire Parkway, which will be opening later in the year.

Councillor Karen May, cabinet member with responsibility for transformation and commissioning at Worcestershire County Council said: “The resident roadshows for this year are well underway and it’s great to be on the road again talking to local residents about issues in the area they call home.

We’re looking forward to meeting Evesham residents, when we bring our roadshow stand to this year’s River Boat festival. 

These events are a great opportunity to speak directly to Councillors and officers about the local issues in the Evesham area and to ask any questions you may have.

We are particularly interested in speaking to people in Evesham about the importance of making decisions about your future and to give residents the chance to learn more about our new children’s services company, Worcestershire Children First, before its launch this October.” 

Evesham’s annual River Boat Festival is a hub of live music, entertainment, river activities, which will be completed with an illuminated boat parade and fireworks.

The Council has held its Resident Roadshows every year since 2009 and since then the Council has used the events to have conversations with more than 10,000 people from across Worcestershire.
