All 11 councillors will be involved in at least one of these sessions within their own wards, and we’re looking forward to meeting with the community to talk about our proposed budget for the next financial year.

It’s a good opportunity to ask us questions or discuss any issues you might have. If you’re nearby, we encourage you to come and say hello.
