Cllr James Deneslow will be running a stall to speak to residents
Residents hoping to pick up fresh groceries in Queen’s Park this weekend will also have the chance to discuss how to improve the community with their local councillor.
Cllr James Denselow (Lab) will be running a stall at Queen’s Park Farmers’ Market in order to get ideas from local residents on what Ward Working money should be spent on.
Ward Working is designed to engage councillors and residents in order to set-up projects in their communities; each ward is given £20,000.
Cllr Denselow said: “Holding a surgery in a popular farmers market is an excellent opportunity to take the discussion over local budgets into the heart of the local community.

“With the resources of the Council so stretched by the government’s austerity agenda it is crucial that we effectively include local voices in decisions around local budgets. I look forward to putting my Councillor t-shirt on and hearing peoples’ ideas”
The farmers’ market is held every Sunday from 10am to 2pm at Queen’s Park Primary School in Salusbury Road.
