THE annual town meeting for Neston will include a question and answer session with councillors.

Neston mayor Martin Barker will present the annual report, after which residents are invited to take part in the question and answer session.

Mr Barker said: “I’d like to encourage as many people as possible to attend the meeting, to see for themselves what the council is doing on their behalf.”

During a recent Health & Well-being Day at Neston Community & Youth Centre, attendees were invited to fill in a feedback form, stating the best and worst things about the area and what one thing they would change.

On reviewing the feedback, Neston Town Council’s Society & Culture Committee noted that many of the issues raised have either already been addressed, or are in the process of being addressed by the council.

Residents expressed the desire to see more flowers in the town, so the council has undertaken a ‘greening of Neston’ project over a number of months and, in partnership with other local bodies, has committed some of the Sainsbury’s S106 funds to upgrade lamp-posts in the town centre to a heritage style, including brackets for hanging baskets.

In a further initiative to help tidy up the town, the council’s partnership with CAN Group to form a Neston Youth Council resulted in young people taking part in a litter pick.

To find out more about the council and what it is doing on behalf of local residents, come along to the annual town meeting on Tuesday, May 15, at 6.30pm at Dee Scout Centre, Burton Road, Neston or visit the website:
