News: Meet Your County Councillor In Chorley
Wednesday, 30th June 2004
There will be a chance for Chorley residents to find out more about the services provided by their county council on Sunday 4 July 2004.
Lancashire County Council's mobile information unit will be taking part in the Disability Awareness Day from 11am until 4pm at the Flat Iron Market. The event has been organised by Chorley Borough Council in partnership with Lancashire County Council, and the Chorley and South Ribble NHS trust.
The trailer has everything on board for people wanting to know more about the services provided by their county council and also for those wanting to plan a day out or break in the red rose county.
County Councillor David Lloyd, chairman of the county council's Health Equalities Overview and Scrutiny Committee, said:
"This is the first time we have taken the mobile unit to Chorley and all our councillors are looking forward to the day. Wherever we go local people always turn up eager to quiz our councillors and officers. We have everything on board to help people with their council enquiries and also to enjoy a great day out or break in the red rose county.
"Disability Awareness Day is an ideal opportunity to spotlight how our Social Services team work to improve the lives of people with disabilities. The public often rate our services very highly yet they don't always know that it is the county council providing them. This is your chance to find out exactly how your money is being spent."
County councillors Don Yates, Vincent Murphy and Margaret Livesey will also be on hand to answer enquiries and meet the public.
