Resident Roadshow returning to Pershore Plum Festival

Public health team model resistance bands at worcester show Published Tuesday, 23rd August 2022

Worcestershire County Council’s Resident Roadshows will be in Pershore to find out what is most important to the residents of Wychavon.

The fourth roadshow of this summer’s countywide tour will be the Pershore Plum Festival on Sunday 28th August between 9:30am-5:30pm.

Councillors and council staff will be on hand to share information, and take residents questions about the services it provides.

There will also be opportunities to explore how the money residents spend on their Council Tax is spent on services the Council provides.

The stand will also showcase information about the Council’s Corporate Plan; Shaping Worcestershire’s Future.

The county’s Public Health team will also be at the event encouraging everyone to keep moving and learn fun exercises that will help our county’s people live well for longer - they’ll also be giving away resistance bands to give you a helping hand with those exercises!

Councillor Simon Geraghty, Leader of Worcestershire County Council said: “It has been brilliant bringing the resident roadshows to events across the county, and I’m really pleased that residents have really engaged with our council staff and councillors about the issues that matter most to them in their local communities. Pershore Plum Festival has been a popular event for us over the years, and I’m really hopeful that will be the case this year. This year, we also have the digital roadshow. This will allow us to get more feedback from across the county, reaching those residents who may not be near a roadshow event, and helps us inform more people about the functions of the county council.”
