Caroline Flint MP and Don Valley Labour Party will be hosting an open forum for local residents at Warmsworth Community Centre, on Saturday 12 February from 1.30-2.30pm.
Said Caroline: “Neighbourhood meetings have proved a very helpful means of keeping in touch with people over the years.
“It can only be good for Labour Party representatives to arrange opportunities for residents to air their concerns about crime, libraries, public services or whatever issues matter to them.
Said Labour’s Bob Johnson: “Despite being in the internet era with email and Facebook, there is no substitute for getting out to meet people, listen and have a conversation about the issues of concern.”
Said Cllr Elsie Butler: “We have already spoken to over 300 Warmsworth residents on the doorstep in the past few weeks and the message we are hearing is that they are worried about jobs, about libraries and about cuts in local policing.”
The forums planned this month include Warmsworth, Rossington, Dunsville and Thorne. “Caroline’s coffee and chat”, are informal, last an hour, and invitations are sent to 800-1000 local residents on each occasion, due to limited places.
The neighbourhood meetings are to discuss a range of issues. Anyone who has a personal problem they need assistance with, can contact Caroline Flint’s office on 01302 623330 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
