Shoppers can check out the latest council information at the supermarket as extra ward surgeries are set up.

North Tyneside Council Monkseaton North members Alison Austin, Paul Mason and Les Miller will hold the sessions in the foyer of Sainsbury’s.

The Newsteads Drive store will play host to the councillors on the first Wednesday of every month, from 6pm to 7pm.

They also hold surgeries on the second Saturday of the month at Waves, from 10am to 11am, and on the fourth Saturday, from 9.30am to 10.15am, at St Peter’s Crosskeys Hall.

Coun Austin said: “Holding an advice surgery in a supermarket is an innovative idea. We would like to thank Sainsbury’s for its help in making this possible.”
