Only a couple of days to go now until we hold our first open forum. We are holding the forum in Wellingborough on Wednesday (6th June) at 7pm in Glamis Hall. Entry is free, there is car parking and refreshments are available.
The purpose is to inform local councilors/councils of the communities views, topics will include this time will be the proposed Town Council and Jackson’s Lane Car Park. We have the local county councillor, who is also a borough councillor, introducing both topics. We are also hearing from a couple of other speakers; Marion Turner-Hawes is explaining why we are setting up Northamptonshire Community Voices and Liz Coombe is talking about community paticipation.
It should be an energising evening, everyone will get an opportunity to speak; all we ask is that everyone abides by three simple rules: No rudeness, no party politics and no advertising, and do remember everyone wants to hear your views, so please try to make your points clearly and concise.
