Dales residents invited to participate in autumn forums

Local residents are being urged to take part in the next round of Area Community Forums to be staged across the Derbyshire Dales this autumn.

Hot topics up for discussion include a ‘You Said – We Did’ feedback session, a Good News briefing from Chief Executive Dorcas Bunton, an ‘Efficiencies’ workshop session, an update on recycling issues and a popular Questions & Answers session.

Council Leader Councillor Lewis Rose OBE said:

“These forums continue to be important to us in reaching out to local people and listening to what they have to say.

It’s a great opportunity for local people to get involved and we would urge anyone who hasn’t attended a forum before to come along.”

Residents can pick up some handy tips on how to recycle more and there’ll be an update on future waste and recycling issues. There’ll also be an opportunity to take part in The Budget Game where participants will be asked how they would spend the Council’s money and whether they have any suggestions for savings.

The Forums will take place at

  • Wirksworth Memorial Hall on Tuesday 18th October,
  • Parwich Village Hall on Tuesday 25th October and
  • Eyam Church Centre on Tuesday 1st November.

All start at 7 pm and anyone who can’t attend in person can email questions in advance to communityforum@derbyshiredales.gov.uk  or via the District Council’s Facebook and Twitter pages. The 1st November forum will also feature a live Twiter feed at www.twitter.com/derbyshiredales 

A Question Time session will enable audience members to ask questions and make comments and suggestions to the various representatives.
