Local residents were able to find out more about their parish council, local services and all groups and organisation that flourish in their parish at ‘Connecting Clifton’ which took place on Saturday 27 February.
The unique event was initially aimed at engaging local residents who may be interested in standing as a Parish Councillor in the May local elections; and to provide an understanding of what the Parish Council does and the services other local authorities supply on behalf of residents.
It was also opened up to the many local groups and organisations which created a ‘market place’ to promote their activities and services to local residents. These included the Local History Group, Art Group, WI, St Marys Church, Tennis Club and the Townsend Memorial Hall.
Those who visited the event were also able to speak to representatives of the Association of Local Councils, Rugby Borough Council, the developers of the Rugby Radio mast site, Clifton Primary School, the Police and the local Neighbourhood Watch over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
