News: Quiz Your County Councillor

Monday, 8th March 2004
(PR 1158)

Morecambe residents are being urged to get to know their county councillors better at an upcoming roadshow event.

Lancashire County Council's Mobile Information Unit will be pulling into Morrisons on Central Drive on Saturday 13 March 2004, between 10am and 4pm.

Members of the public will be able to find out more about county council services as well as chatting to the local politicians.

County Councillor Jean Yates, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation said:

"Although we've visited Lancaster on a number of occasions, this is the first visit to Morecambe so we are really looking forward to meeting as many members of the public as possible.

"The information unit has been visiting the whole of Lancashire and has proved a big success in allowing staff and members to let people know exactly what services we provide.

"Lancashire County Council provides a great many services for our residents but while some are well known, others do not get the recognition they deserve.

"The public often rate our services very highly but don't always know that the County Council provides them. This is your chance to find out exactly how your money is spent."

County Councillors Niki Penney and David Wood are also scheduled to attend.
