Braithwaite residents invited to Trudy's Saturday Chataway surgery

Trudy Harrison welcomed residents to the latest Saturday Chataway surgery in Braithwaite at the weekend.

Councillors and locally elected members joined Mrs Harrison at St Herbert Church Rooms to speak with constituents, listen to their concerns and suggestions and assist with their issues.

Copeland councillors in attendance at the surgery included Chris Whiteside, Arthur Lamb, and Martin Barbour along with Allerdale Borough Councillor, Tony Markley.

Mrs Harrison, said: “Thank you everyone for joining me in Braithwaite on Saturday, it was lovely to see so many people and all for a good cause.

“The topics brought to my attention were varied, including the controversial Gondola development, 2nd home issues, empty homes and Brexit.

“Some very sensible solutions were proposed by residents which I am following up this week.”

The next Saturday Chataway surgery will be held in Hensingham, Whitehaven on Saturday 3rd November at Richmond Community Centre between 10am and 12pm.

Each month, the coffee morning style surgeries raise money for a much valued local organisation or charity.

Proceeds from this month’s Saturday Chataway which raised £52.55 will be donated to the Bishop’s Harvest Appeal which aims to support farmers in Malawi and South Africa affected by climate change.
