SWINDON Council is inviting people to an open forum tonight before its cabinet meeting.

The meeting will be held in Committee Room six at the authority's Civic Offices in Euclid Street.

Coun Fionuala Foley, lead member for corporate affairs, policy and performance, said the forums were a good opportunity for residents to meet cabinet members and directors.

"This is the perfect time for residents to express any concerns they may have about a council-related topic or find out information they need," she said.

"Everyone is welcome, whether they have an issue to raise or would just like to find out more about current topics being discussed by the council.

"We keep the atmosphere informal and whatever the subject, we will do our best to answer any queries or concerns."

The forum will start at 6pm and finish at 6.30pm.
