Learn about town council

A TOWN council will hold an open day in a bid to forge a stronger relationship with the people it serves.

Sudbury Town Council is inviting people to visit the town hall to get an insight into the authority, the services it provides and the benefits it brings.

Visitors will also be given the opportunity to meet some members of the newly-elected council, while getting advice on a range if issues, including tax and bus passes.

Town clerk Sue Brotherwood said: “The council has always had a very strong relationship with the public it serves and the idea of the open day is to help us engage more directly with the community and strengthen our relationship.

“With some of the most significant changes in local government in decades currently taking place, the role of the town council is growing and it has never been so important for us to work closely with the community.”

She added: “Many people still do not understand the breadth of the work carried out by the town council and the range of services we can offer.

“We hope people will attend the open day so they can learn all about exactly what we do and how we can support them and the local community.”

Representatives from the Tourist Information Centre, Sudbury Advice Centre and the community wardens will also be on hand during the open day on June 2 from 9am to 3pm.
