“I’m delighted to present this programme of special events to celebrate Local Democracy Week 2017. Local government touches every aspect of our day-to-day lives and the decisions that our local leaders make affect everyone in our communities. Citizens have told us that they would like more opportunities to meet and hear from their local councillors and to get involved in civic life. I’d encourage everyone who is interested to join in and help us to grow the stronger local democracy that we all want and deserve.”
