“Don’t forget to register for the Worcestershire County Council BUDGET ENGAGEMENT MEETING at 6pm on 23 January at County Hall.

Each year the Council holds a series of meetings with representatives from the community to discuss its proposed budget plans and the possible impact this may have locally. Michael Hudson, Chief Financial Officer would like to invite you to the budget engagement briefing for Parish & Town Councils and Voluntary & Community Sector at County Hall, Worcester on Wednesday, 23 January 2019 at 6.00pm. We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about the Council's proposals for 2019/20 and answer the questions you may have at the meeting.

There are a limited number of spaces available, so we would be grateful if you could send only one representative from your organisation, who can feed back to colleagues. We will operate on a first come, first served basis so a speedy response is recommended.

Please contact Deborah Dale at Worcestershire County Council by Friday 11 January 2019 to register your attendance:
