DROITWICH residents will have the chance to quiz councillors, the police, housing associations and others at a special Communities and Agencies Together (CAT) meeting.

The gathering is taking place at St Nicholas Church from 7.30 to 9pm on Tuesday, May 15 and people are invited to come along and raise any issues or concerns they may have with their Wychavon district councillor Roy Murphy, their county and town councillors, as well as with the police, housing association representatives and the Droitwich Council for Voluntary Services.

Tracy Perkins, localism and communities officer at Wychavon District Council, said: "This event provides a good opportunity for people to come and meet their local councillors and other organisations without the need to make an appointment. They can raise any issues or concerns they may have in order to see what we can do to help. This event will also give people the chance to find out about some of the things we do for the community and to get all the latest news and advice on the services we provide."

Councillor Richard Morris, who organised the meeting, said: "This is a much broader approach we’re taking to support the local community and to find out what people’s concerns are. We hope we have a good turnout so that we can show that this shared approach is the way forward when it comes to listening to residents and the importance of agencies coming together to find solutions."

Residents who are unable to attend but have a question to put forward can email Councillor Richard Morris at richmoz@hotmail.com.
