Have at least three council meetings to attend this week, so it’s back to work with a vengeance.
The key one for me is the Community Services Scrutiny Committee on Thursday the 6th September. The main topic is on Council support for young people, which includes a presentation by Surrey Heath Youth Council.
Specific to Lightwater, what’s needed urgently is a meeting space for young people in the centre of the village. That’s what I’m being told. While Surrey Heath isn’t the formal provider of services for young people [that's a Surrey County Council role], we provide play areas, and opportunities and support for young people to get involved in sport. Must do some detailed fact-finding before the meeting.
I’ve also received three invitations to events in Sepetember and October, more on these in the next blog post
