A farmers market in Queen’s Park became a lively hub for political debate as a councillor used the opportunity to chat with constituents.

Residents picking up their fresh fruit and vegetables at the market in Salusbury Road found themselves discussing a range of issues with local councillor Cllr James Denselow.

Cllr Denselow had transformed part of the market into his regular surgery, a forum for residents to meet their councillors.

Among the topics discussed included street cleaning, 20mph zones, libraries, primary school places and how to use ward working funds.

Cllr Denselow said: “There was some great weather for Sunday’s surgery in Queen’s Park Farmers Market. Thanks for all those who came along to support and to all the residents who raised a huge variety of issues

“I hope to be down the market again soon, it is really important that councillors and residents work closely together and I will continue to look to carry the debate around how the council operates to new locations”.
