Queen’s Park councillor launches innovative methods to keep in touch with residents
Cllr James Deneslow takes his ventures both outdoors and online
A pioneering councillor has launched two innovative methods of keeping in touch with residents in a bid to improve communications.
Cllr James Denselow, a Labour councillor for the Queen’s Park ward has taken his ventures both outdoors and online.
Firstly, Cllr, Denselow has designed an eye catching running top in the hope residents will spot his availability and get in touch with their concerns.
He told the Times: “As a keen marathon runner I train in and around Queen’s Park most weeks and thought it would be good to clearly identify myself as one of the area’s local councillors.

“I have lived most of my life in Queen’s Park but had never met my local councillor until I was elected.
“Hopefully people will stop me to ask questions and can put a face to a local name”.

In addition, he will also be the first councillor in the borough to offer an online surgery, meaning instead of venturing outside to set locations, residents can get in touch at the click of a button.
He said: “Increasingly people are shopping and arranging more and more aspects of their lives online so it makes sense for people to be able to interact with their local representatives on the web.”
“The surgery also allows people to see how other residents are discussing issues and allows people to contribute anonymously if they would prefer”.
The online surgery is available at www.cllrdenselow.com and will launch on October 15.
