MAY I take this opportunity through your letters page to thank the residents who attended our first council surgery at the Moose Hall, Blackwood, on Friday September 1? 

Cllr Etheridge and I were extremely pleased at the number of residents who attended.

We would also like to take this opportunity to reassure the residents that we will do our utmost to resolve the many issues that were brought to our attention.

We are also looking forward to meeting more residents at our next surgery that will be held at the same venue on Friday October 6 at 1pm.

Councillor Andrew Farina-Childs
Councillor Kevin Etheridge
