Take pride in Biggleswade

RESIDENTS and businesses can talk about issues in Biggleswade at a forthcoming community event.

Pride in Biggleswade will take place on Wednesday, October 26 and aims to give people who live and work in the town the chance to get involved in community life.

During the event, which will run from 9am to 5pm in the town centre, representatives from a variety of different organisations will be on hand to discuss issues of concern.

Central Bedfordshire Council, Aragon Housing Association, Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Service and Bedfordshire Police will be sending representatives to the town on the day.

Central Beds Council staff will also be in the market square and the ASDA car park to give advice on issues like licensing, waste disposal and community safety.

Officers will be checking on licensing issues and touring the area to see where improvements can be made to the environment.

Councillor Budge Wells, deputy executive member for sustainable communities services at Central Beds Council, said: “The Pride in Biggleswade day is a great opportunity for people to discuss any local issues with representatives from a wide range of organisations.

“It is also a chance for people to take steps to improve their own local environment.”
