Stratford Editorial 23rd Nov, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE SPOTLIGHT will be shone on Stratford district’s communities at a special event next week.

Leader of Warwickshire County Council, Izzi Seccombe will be joined by her Stratford counterpart, Chris Saint, and a host of other representatives from the police, health and voluntary sectors at the Stratford District Annual Conference.

The conference is set to take place on Wednesday (December 2) from 6pm to 9pm at The University of Warwick’s campus in Wellesbourne – formerly Horticultural Research Institute – and will be hosted by Touch FM’s chief executive, Steve Orchard.

Organised jointly by Warwickshire County Council and Stratford District Council, the event will give residents the chance to discuss issues they have as well as hearing plans for the district’s future.

Part of the conference will be centred on the development of future priorities for communities and all delegates will be invited to raise community issues around a number of themes.

The issues highlighted will then be used to shape the future work of the council’s emerging Social Inclusion Statement.

In addition to Coun Seccombe and Coun Saint, Warwickshire’s police and crime commissioner, Ron Ball, will be on hand to answer questions as well as vice chair of Voluntary Action Stratford, David Squires and chair of South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group, David Spraggett.

Registration and refreshments will be available from 6pm with presentations from 7pm to 9pm.

Con Saint said: “This is a great opportunity for Stratford district residents to hear first-hand about future priorities for their community and for them to help shape future services based on their needs and what’s important to them.”

Tickets are free but must be booked online.
