Your Village, Your Voice...

Last year, the Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP) and local Parish Council undertook a residents' survey in order to assess the most pressing concerns felt by those living in the area. The survey revealed that Esh residents were most troubled by road safety, local employment, and environmental issues. 

On Thursday 6th June, the mid-Durham AAP staff team, County Councillors and Parish Councillors will be holding a 'chat and a cuppa' drop-in session in St Michael's RC Primary School between 4-6.30pm to discuss plans to improve the matters raised by the survey and to hear residents' views on how best to work more closely with the community on a variety of projects and initiatives. 

Members of the Esh Village Residents Association (EVRA) will be dropping in on the session from 5.45pm onwards to chat about the work we have been doing of late - namely the litter picks, the flower displays, the social and sport groups, and the grants obtained for the local primary schools- and to find even more positive ways to work with the County and Parish Councils on matters relating to road maintenance and safety. All are welcome to the session - the more the merrier!
