Community, voluntary and public sectors come together for Our Rugby, Our Future
RESIDENTS can find out about the wide range of services delivered in Rugby by the community, voluntary and public sectors at a free drop-in event next week.
Our Rugby, Our Future takes place at the BENN Hall, in Newbold Road, from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 5 November.
The event includes a 'market place' in the main hall with more than 50 stalls showcasing the work of a wide range of organisations in the borough.
Stallholders include Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, Barnardo's, Warwickshire Police, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, and Coventry and Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
Rugby Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council also host stalls, while visitors can also speak to borough and county councillors about local issues.
In addition, the event includes free refreshments and entertainment, with performances by Impact Dance with Hayley and singers from Rugby Area Talent Trust in the BENN Hall's Rokeby Room.
Our Rugby, Our Future has been organised by Rugby Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council, and Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action (CAVA).
Cllr Leigh Hunt, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for communities and homes, said: "Our Rugby, Our Future celebrates the vital work carried out in the borough by a wide range of community, voluntary and public sector organisations.
"It's a great opportunity for residents to find out more about support services on offer in Rugby, get involved in new activities, and have a say on the issues which matter to them."
