MORE than 1,000 people have had their say at Worcestershire County Council's annual resident roadshows – the largest number since they started seven years ago with three shows still remaining.

More than 200 county residents came along to the council's marquee at the Far Forest Countryside Show near Tenbury to talk about a wide range of services.

Six roadshows in total have now taken place in the county.

"They have proved, yet again, to be a great way for us to engage with our residents and find out what they think of the services we run,” said Adrian Hardman, deputy leader of Worcestershire County Council.

"We've had lots of questions about our children and young people's plan and about the major infrastructure projects that we are investing in across the county.

The roadshow's attractions include a Working Together handprint wall where children and young people are encouraged to use paints and put their hand print on the wall to support the revised council plan that puts children at the heart of everything we do.

There's also a tree for youngsters to put down what they would change or introduce if they were King or Queen of Worcestershire.

Some of the suggestions so far include more children's playgrounds in the county, ensuring there is enough food for everyone in the county and having an ice-cream fountain in the town centre.
