Helen Goodman MP and Durham Commissioner co-host public surgery
The first public surgery which will be jointly co-hosted in Evenwood by Helen Goodman MP and Ron Hogg, the newly-elected Police and Crime Commissioner, has been announced.
The surgery is open to all residents in the Bishop Auckland constituency but it is hoped that residents in the Evenwood area will be encouraged to come along.
Members of the public can raise general issues, or specific community safety related issues at the surgery.
Helen said: “I am delighted that Ron is joining me in Evenwood to meet local residents. Constituents attend surgeries to discuss many different issues from decline in bee populations to housing and benefit issues. Constituents do not need to make an appointment”.
Commenting on the upcoming surgery, Ron said:
“I am keen to meet and listen to as many people as possible across the force area and I am pleased to join-up with Helen Goodman MP for this public surgery in Evenwood on 21st June. I believe that by working together at events such as these, members of the public have the opportunity to speak about a broader range of issues, including any policing and crime related concerns”.
The surgery will be take place between 5.00 – 6.00 p.m. on Friday 21st June 2013 at Evenwood Children’s Centre, Stone End, Evenwood, County Durham, DL14 9RE.
