Chance to discuss issues with councillors

Residents are being invited to raise local issues with councillors and senior officials.

The latest ‘Community Conversation’ event – giving the public the chance to talk to ward councillors on local issues – will take place on Tuesday, February 18, in the Valley ward.

There will be a question and answer session, a presentation on the relocation of Backworth Primary School, and a police update about responding to local crime.

The event is being held at the Shiremoor Centre, Earsdon Road, Shiremoor, and the public are asked to arrive from 6.40pm, for a 7pm start, and it will finish at 8pm.
