MALVERN residents looking to get help and have their say on local government can do so at new events beginning next month.

Malvern Hills District Council leader Cllr Tom Wells has launched a new regular leader's surgery, giving people from the district their chance to ask questions and give their views on where they live.

Cllr Wells, who has been in the position as leader for just over a month, will be holding a regular surgery on the first Monday of each month.

The event will run between 10am and 12pm at the Council House in Malvern, beginning on July 4.

‘Talk to Tom’ is an opportunity for residents in the Malvern Hills District to meet Cllr Tom Wells and chat face to face about any issues they believe the council can assist them with.

Cllr Wells said: "These sessions are a great way to keep in touch with residents to discuss any matter of importance to them, and to also see if there are any improvements that can be made within the district.

"It is important that we not only listen to our residents but deliver results where possible.

"I am really looking forward to meeting new people and helping in any way that I can."
