Public invited to meetings on Community Warden Initiative

The two-year Community Warden initiative, which is funded mainly by the Scottish Executive, is reviewed every 6 months, and The Highland Council, which manages the three Community Wardens, wants to know if people have noticed a difference in their areas.

The Council is inviting residents of the Coulpark, Firhill, Kirkside, Milnafua, and Westford areas of Alness, and the South Lodge area of Invergordon, to either of two Public Meetings.

Stephen Callan, Area Housing Manager for Ross & Cromarty, said: “We are very keen to hear from residents in these areas to find out if they think having a Warden is making a real difference. We need to know how it has gone so far, where improvements have been made, and what can be done better in the future. The feedback we receive will influence the priorities for the Warden’s in the coming year. So we hope as many as possible will come to the meetings to make their views heard.”

Residents of the areas are invited to attend either of the following Public Meetings to give their views:

• Monday 12 June at Invergordon Arts Centre from 7:30pm-9.00 pm
• Thursday 15 June at Averon Leisure Centre, Alness from 7:30pm-9.00 pm

Those who cannot attend either of the two meetings can post their comments to:
