Travellers Update

16/11/2020

Recently we were invited to participate in a ‘Travellers Summit’ with fellow Councillors, Officers and MP Mark Francois. Prior to attending this meeting I invited residents to send me questions so I could responses from officers. I duly passed on these comments and I was angered by the response I received. Sorry in my delay […]
