Downham Market Town Councillors’ hold a regular Monthly Surgery outside the
Town Hall from April to October. This is an opportunity for any members of the
public to have a word with the Councillors present on any matter to do with the
Town. Usually three or four Councillors will be there each month to talk with
Saturday 6th October 2018.
Town Council undertakes many tasks on behalf of residents, but with our
ever-increasing population, the number of events and organisations that we are
involved with means that we are at times extremely stretched.
Environmental Sub-Committee are therefore looking for a team of willing
volunteers who could help out with various tasks, including several who could be
called on at fairly short notice for example, if we had a heavy snow fall, to
help clear the pathways or help tidy the town prior to major events.
is no limit to the number of volunteers needed so the more we have on file, the
better. Also, if you feel you could only give an hour very occasionally – don’t
be put off – it would still be very much appreciated.
