Clive has held coffee mornings in the Slade area to offer people the opportunity to come and meet him and have a cup of tea and a chat. He says, “I hold eight surgeries a month for people that have a particular issue they would like me to help with, but these events give people the chance to pop-in without necessarily having anything in particular they want to raise. I have even had people come in just to meet me and say hello, which is very nice.”
Clive holds regular walkabouts in areas where there are residents’ groups that have issues they want to bring to his attention, but there are some areas where this has not been possible to arrange. He feels that the coffee mornings have gone so well that he will continue to hold them in the future.
