People who live in rural communities around Royston are invited to discuss the issues which affect them with police in a barn.

The aim of the Barn Meet is to chat about problems such as fly-tipping, equine issues, Royston’s heritage, wildlife, hunting, the environment and rural affairs.

Attendees will have the opportunity to pose their questions to a panel of guests including the chief constable, Trading Standards, National Farmers Union and the fire service.

Councillor Tony Hunter, responsible for rural affairs at the district council, said: “The event is an invaluable tool for forging better links between the police, farmers and communities and providing reassurance to the rural community that their concerns are being actively listened to.”

Barn Meet will take place on Wednesday from 10am to 12pm at Thrift Farm in Baldock Road.
