VISITORS to Bromsgrove Market will be able to quiz councillors as well as buying bargains this weekend.

Worcestershire County Council representatives will be at the historic market all day on Saturday (August 3) from 9am-5pm as its 'Resident Roadshow' programme continues.

At the top of the agenda will be information on the improvements to the A38 around Bromsgrove, the new Worcestershire Parkway Station and the passenger transport survey.

Those who go along will have the chance to ask any questions they have about county council services. Councillors will be joined by council staff to answer questions on local issues.

They will also explain more about a new company, Worcestershire Children First, which is launching in October to provide children’s services for Worcestershire.

Experts will be available to give advice on how best to plan for the future and to continue to live independently for longer into older age.

Councillor Karen May, cabinet member with responsibility for transformation and commissioning at Worcestershire County Council, said: “We are looking forward to speaking to people in Bromsgrove about the things that matter most to their area.

“The resident roadshows are the perfect opportunity for us to learn from local people and to spread the word about upcoming projects.

“We are also looking forward to speaking to people about the importance of making decisions for your future and to give residents the chance to learn more about our new children’s services company, Worcestershire Children First, before its launch this October.”

The council has held its Resident Roadshows every year since 2009 and since that time it has used the events to have conversations with more than 10,000 people from across Worcestershire.
