Congleton people are invited to the annual Town Meeting which will take place in Congleton Town Hall on Thursday 26th April at 7pm. This is not a Council meeting but a meeting for the people of Congleton where questions can be raised. The meeting must be held before the end of May each year.
Doors open at 6.30pm and there will be a chance to have a hot drink before the start of the meeting and look at display boards. The meeting will be chaired by the Town Mayor, Cllr Charles Booth who will give a quick review of the year. Other presentations include the Neighbourhood Plan, Congleton in Bloom and plans for the Cenotaph.
The presentations will be followed by a question and answer session, and then an open session where anyone can ask questions and raise issues that concern Congleton. The meeting is expected to close at 8.30pm
Chief Officer, David McGifford said: “The Annual Town Meeting is a great chance for local people to get together and ask questions about issues affecting the town. It is not a Council meeting, and any councillors attending have the same rights as everyone else in the room. Issues raised in the meeting will be picked up by the Council or forwarded to the appropriate organisation for consideration. I hope that many local residents and representatives from local organisations will take the time to attend.”
