GreenSquare organised a series of roadshows recently, to give residents the chance to meet staff and give feedback on what’s been going on in their neighbourhoods – and to get advice and support from partner agencies.
The ‘Community Counts’ roadshows took place at three different locations in Chippenham. Residents enjoyed a barbecue and drinks with members of the GreenSquare team and discussed what they like about their neighbourhoods, what they feel could be improved, and highlighted any current issues.
Also present at each event were representatives from GreenSquare’s partner agencies, including local police, dog wardens, Citizens Advice Bureau and Homes 4 Wiltshire. Residents were able to chat to the representatives about welfare reform; fuel poverty; recycling and waste removal; and home exchange opportunities.
Paul Worthen, Customer Manager at GreenSquare, said: “I am pleased that residents took the time to come out to chat, not just to GreenSquare staff and our partner representatives, but to their neighbours as well.
“Events like this are a vital way for residents to provide us with feedback about their neighbourhoods and to ask us any questions they might have. Everyone made the most of the opportunity to talk to representatives from our partner agencies and seemed to find the information they were provided with very helpful.”
