Councillors, community representatives and residents met last night for the final meeting of the Salisbury Area Board before the May elections. Decisions were made to fund two youth projects – to facilitate positive activities for adopted teenagers and to run 50 cookery sessions to disadvantaged young people across the city. Councillors also debated the programme of works to repair our worn out roads during 2017/18, and canvassed local opinion around the idea of Salisbury becoming a 24 hour city.
Public thanks were recorded for all the unitary councillors for their work over the past 4 years, and special thanks was given to Councillor Bill Moss, who has served the city and the county for well over 10 years, and is now taking a well deserved break from public life.
The first meeting of the new Salisbury Area Board will be on Wednesday, 24th May at Five Rivers Health & Wellbeing Centre from 6.30pm. For more information, please contact Karen Linaker on 01722 434697.
