8:25am 23rd September 2013

Bridport residents can shape the future of adult care services in the town this week by putting their views across at three seperate events in the town.

The public consultation starts today with the future of Sidney Gale House, a residential home for elderly people, and the Bridport Youth Centre amongst those which may close or see changes as the county looks to pump £ 4.7 million into supporting the delivery of services in the area.

Three events are being held for your views to be expressed.

The first is  this afternoon at West Bay's Salt House, which is a drop-in session.

Then a similar drop-in session at the Town Hall on Thursday is followed immediately by a presentation from county council staff.

Then on Saturday between 10am and 2pm a display stan's being manned outside Bridport TIC where you can have your say.

County Councillor Ros Kayes, who represents Bridport, says it's vital the strength of feeling locally is known and is urging residents to turn up to the events to exprerss their opinions either vocally or in writing.  She's adamant a residential home for the elderly must be kept in Bridport.
