Council services advice and information stalls to appear at Alford, Spilsby and other markets

East Lindsey District Council’s Street Talking Community Engagement Programme, aimed at taking information about its services to local people, will start again next week.

The Community Engagement Programme will visit the district’s five market towns, starting on Thursday (June 20) with Mablethorpe Market where you will find information on services.

Representatives from the council’s Housing Support Team and the council Dog Warden will be there to give advice and leaflets to residents. First Contact and Station Sport’s Centre representatives will also be on hand.

On Monday, July 1, the team will be at Spilsby Market and on Tuesday, July 9, they will head to Alford Market.

On both occasions, residents will find information on a number of council services. The council’s Housing Support Team and Dog Warden will be there together with representatives from other organisations including First Contact and Smokefree Lincs.

On Thursday, July 18 the team can be found at Horncastle Market. And, to finish off, on Friday, July 26, the team will head to Louth.

The council’s Portfolio Holder for Communities, Sandra Harrison, said: “The market stall will be packed full of leaflets and information on not only important Council services, but also on a range our partner organisations including First Contact and Local Policing Teams.

“The team will also welcome any queries people may have and help where possible, or at least point people in the right direction of where to go for help.

“The Street Talking initiative aims to provide residents with somewhere they can access council information as they go about their daily routine, and also offer a chance for them to ask questions.

“We are always keen to hear what our residents have to say and this is another way the council invites people to have their say at the same time as finding out about some of the services we offer.”
