Please see the letter from the Police Commissioner below asking for your views the questionnaire is quick and easy to do. 

Dear Resident,

As your Police and Crime Commissioner I want to work with you to deliver on our policing and community safety priorities and to keep West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.

These are incredibly challenging times for our police service as the government has cut our police budget by a third at the cost of over 2,000 police officers and staff. As West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, I can increase the policing element of the council tax to recruit more police here but I want to know what you think to inform the decisions I need to take. I would be therefore very grateful if you could spare some time to complete this short questionnaire to gather your views and encourage your colleagues, friends and family to do the same.

We  have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor please get in touch with the Clerk Diane Brown or Chair of the Council Cllr Jacqui Smith if you are interested, we look forward to hearing from you.

News from Ward Councillor Mark Dobson 

Nothing particular to report but you could mention that it looks like Swillington Primary intake was okay this year-Sarah and I have had no appeal requests.

Also that we attended Spring In Bloom judging and that we are meeting with the PC RE: the Garforth boundary problem.

Could you also add we have changed our Surgery to the first Weds of the month, community centre at 6pm to try and generate more take up.

Best wishes
