After several years plying our trade at ASDA's store in Whinbush Way, Haughton's 7 Labour ward councillors have moved our Surgery to the mobile library in the supermarket car park.
We were amongst the first councillors in the country to strike up an arrangement with a supermarket in this way, and the relationship has proved very successful for both sides. I'd like to publicly thank ASDA for hosting us so kindly over the years.
Unfortunately, owing to a change in layout at the front of the store, there's no longer any room for ourselves and the Police to sit and meet residents on a monthly basis. In a stroke of inspiration, Cllr. Chris McEwan suggested that we use the mobile library as a venue close by, and so we held our first surgery there on Saturday.
A lot of people seem to have got the message that we've moved, and David, Andy and myself were given several issues to follow up. Our next surgery is on Wednesday 2nd February between 10am and 11.30am, but there's no need to wait til then - simply email one of us (I'm on firstname.lastname@example.org) or ring me on 07960 247554. Andy and David's details can be found here.
