North East Plan agreed

Over 50 people attended the second formal business meeting of the North East Community Assembly at Shirecliffe Community Centre on 21st October.

Members of the public were shown to their seats and served refreshments by young people from Parkwood Academy who also took photos of the event. At the meeting the Community Plan was agreed, it will be the basis for the work of the Assembly team working alongside partners to address issues and improve services.
