Southwell Town Council to hold monthly Saturday market stall for residents to see full council agendas

A council is set to bring its agendas out in public to give residents an opportunity to ask questions.

Southwell Town Council has agreed to reinstate its stall on the town’s market, on the Saturdays before full council meetings.

Councillors will man the stall with copies of the upcoming meeting’s agenda so residents can see what they will be discussing and make comments or ask questions.

It has been timed to avoid clashing with market days when stalls are held by the Liberal Democrats or Labour party to ensure the council can appear as a united front.

The idea was proposed by Gina Adams and seconded by Penny Rainbow, who said: “We don’t have many people come to us [at meetings], so we can take the agenda out to them.”

It was suggested the stall would only need to be in place for an hour or two and councillors could take short shifts manning the stall.

Councillors voted in favour of holding the market stall at the council’s most recent full council meeting, on February 21.
