Have Your Say stall at the Leys Festival and Horticultural Show

Published: Friday, 7th July 2017

Oxford City Council is joining forces with Thames Valley Police to hold a Have Your Say stall at The Leys Festival and Horticultural Show.

It is an opportunity for residents to talk to City Council officers about anti-social behavior and noise issues, and neighbourhood police officers.

The Have Your Say stall will be open through the festival, which takes place in Blackbird Leys Park between 12pm and 4pm on Saturday (8 July). Entry is free.

Thames Valley Police and officers from the City Council hold regular Have Your Say meetings across Oxford, most recently in Manzil Way Gardens.

Councillor Tom Hayes, Oxford City Council Executive Board Member for Community Safety said: “This is a great opportunity for local residents to highlight areas of concern on their doorstep and shape City Council and police services in the area.

“As I saw at the last Have Your Say event, in my ward, local residents really appreciate engaging with an ‘out and about’ approach. It’s a very effective way for the Council to learn a cross-section of views from people we don’t normally hear from. Often people don’t have the time to attend scheduled neighbourhood meetings but will happily tell the Council their views if they see us out and about on the street. Joined together, Have Your Say stalls and regular neighbourhood meetings help us to find a way to help.”
