RESIDENTS can join the conversation on Rugby's future at a free drop-in event next week.

Our Rugby, Our Future gives residents the chance to have a say on the opportunities and challenges the borough faces, and help shape the future of services provided within their own communities.

The event takes place at the BENN Hall from 10am to 2.30pm on Saturday 14 November and includes presentations and discussions, entertainment and a 'market place' with stalls showcasing the work of Rugby's community, voluntary and public sector organisations.

The four presentations focus on the following themes:
  • 10.15am -Safe and Well: crime prevention, personal safety and tackling rural crime
  • 11.15am - Connected and Cohesive: Rugby's voluntary and community sector
  • 12.15pm - Housing and Employment: the issues Rugby has faced, the current situation and how the council's grants can help address both current and emerging issues
  • 1.15pm - Children and Young People: a report from Warwickshire's director of public health
In addition to the presentations, Our Rugby, Our Future's market place has 50 stalls promoting the work of a wide range of organisations in the borough, including the Citizens Advice Bureau, Age UK (Warwickshire), New Directions and the Benn Partnership Centre.

The event also includes a performance from Hillmorton Community Choir and a prize draw.

Our Rugby, Our Future has been organised by Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action (CAVA), Rugby Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council, Rugby FM and Warwickshire College.

Cllr Leigh Hunt, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for sustainable inclusive communities, said: "A number of organisations work together to deliver services for our communities and help Rugby rise to the challenges we face and to seize the opportunities on offer.

"Only by listening to residents can we shape plans and make sure that the services offered by a range of providers meet the needs of the community both now and in the future.

"Our Rugby, Our Future gives residents a chance to have a say on the issues which matter to them while also offering the opportunity to find out about the borough's vibrant voluntary sector and the wide range of support services on offer."
