Police officers and members of Watford Borough Council have been meeting members of the community and listening to any concerns they may have.

Watford's mayor Peter Taylor was joined by newly-elected Liberal Democrat councillor Simon Feldman, and representatives from Hertfordshire Constabulary's safer neighbourhood team in Watford as well as Watford Community Housing.

The residents' surgery was stationed outside the shops in Leavesden Green and on the Kingswood estate earlier this month.

Cllr Feldman, who represents Stanborough ward, said: "We had our first face-to-face local community residents' surgery of the year. These resident surgery days offer an opportunity for anyone to come and speak to the local council, police and services to highlight any concerns they have. No booking was necessary and we encouraged anyone to come along, even if it's just to say hello or share an idea.

"I'm really excited that we are able to meet residents and listen to their concerns, as well as getting to know them and building stronger links within the community.

"It's great that we have such a keen and energetic team working together all for the benefit of Stanborough."

Another surgery is planned to take place this Saturday (June 19).

It will be outside the Post Office at 200 St Albans Road in North Watford between 11am and midday.

The mayor, local councillors, police officers, and Veolia are expected to be in attendance.

Meanwhile, Cllr Feldman is encouraging his constituents to take part in a survey which aims to find out what residents think and what issues councillors and the council should be working on.
