The last of four virtual Q&A events hosted by Royal Borough of Greenwich will be on held on Wednesday 15 July between 1pm and 2pm.

Covering schools, children's services, health and adult social care, Leader of the Council Danny Thorpe, will be joined by Councillors Miranda Williams and Matt Morrow to answer your questions.

The previous Q&A events have proved a huge success with a combined total of over 4,000 views on the Council's Facebook and Youtube channels. Residents can ask questions about topics that are important to them, whilst also finding out about  the new Cabinet Members and their portfolios. 

Feedback about the virtual sessions has been positive, with residents commenting on how useful the meetings have been especially during the pandemic. Residents have been able to ask questions in real time from the comfort of their homes, without having to physically attend sessions.

Cllr Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, said: "The virtual sessions have been a great way to engage with residents about matters that are important to them. The coronavirus pandemic has meant that physical meetings have had to pause, and it’s great to see that this hasn’t stopped residents from wanting to get involved. As a Council, community engagement is always important to us, and the high number of views shows that we must continue to engage with residents through new ways other than the usual traditional methods. We will run similar sessions later on in the year, and if you've got any views on how we can create even more conversations with residents, please let us know".
