PEOPLE across Redditch are being urged to have their say on local services when Worcestershire County Council’s residents roadshows return this weekend.

The first one of the tour will take place at the Hanbury Countryside Show from 9am to 6pm tomorrow (Saturday, July 1).

County councillors and staff members from the authority will be on hand at each event to talk about the wide range of services it provides and support which can make a difference to people’s everyday lives.

People can also get details on how their council tax cash is spent.

During last year’s tour of events, more than 1,000 face-to-face conversations were had with with residents across the county.

This year, the council hopes to talk to even more people and hear what they have to say about the services it provides and supports.

Coun Simon Geraghty, the Leader of Worcestershire County Council, said: “It was great to see so many people face to face at events last year and I’m delighted we are out at events over the summer this year.

“The roadshows are a great way for local people to come and talk to us about the things that are going well in their local communities and issues that matter most to them.

“It’s also a great way to find out more about we spend our budget on the wide range of services we provide and support.”

All six districts or boroughs will be visited.

The next one in Redditch after this will be at the Kingfisher on September 30.

The Digital Roadshow offers more information on how the council spends the cash it has available, details the ‘Shaping Worcestershire’s Future’ – the authority’s plan for the next few years and provides information about living well for longer.
