Free transport to community forumhttp://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/corporat ... C40056306A
Are you someone who would like to have your say on how local services are delivered in your area and how they can be improved?
But are you?
- Worried about going out alone at night?
- Someone who doesn't have access to your own transport?
- Someone who has problems with your mobility?
Then the upcoming Community Forum meeting at Southam Primary School on Monday 22nd February at 6.30 pm is the place for you to be.
We are trialling FREE community transport courtesy of Coachlinks in Harbury at various pick up points within the Southam/Feldon locality area and have even had the Chair of the Community Forum, Cllr David Wise, volunteer to drive one of the minibuses.
Arranged pick up points will be in the villages of Bishops Itchington, Long Itchington, Harbury and Stockton.
We are keen to encourage as many people as possible to attend the forums and provide as much opportunity as possible to help residents raise local issues that are of concern to them.
Cllr David Wise, Chair of the Southam/Feldon Community Forum said: "This is an excellent opportunity for community engagement enabling those with transport problems to contribute to the forum.
"Coachlinks has allowed the community forum to have a greater audience, and I would like to encourage other local companies to get involved and help in similar ways.
"The wider the participation, the stronger as a group we will become."
Cllr Bob Stevens, County Councillor for Feldon said: "I hope residents in the villages around Southam will take this opportunity of free transport to get involved in local affairs and raise the matters that concern them most as well as take the opportunity to hear first hand about local crime from their local police Neighbourhood teams."
Coachlinks run 16 seater buses and provide private hire or contract hire and can be contacted on 01926 613255 (www.quartz2u.com

Community Forums are part of a countywide initiative involving Warwickshire County Council, District and Borough Councils, NHS Warwickshire, Warwickshire Police and Warwickshire Together partners.
There are 30 forums across Warwickshire, which bring together elected representatives across all tiers of local government - County, District and Borough and Parish, together with a range of other community representatives.
