Crowle and Ealand Town Council is to hold new monthly surgeries to allow residents an opportunity to speak with councillors, ask questions and find out information.

Deputy Mayor Paul McCartan and Coun Trevor Barker officially launched the surgeries at the April Market, which takes place on the second Saturday of the month.

The session included questions on the Co-op, market development, speeding and future of the Youth Club. Residents can look out for the banner at a future market and drop by.

Meanwhile, Epworth Town Council has approved a grant application for the renovation of the Imperial Hall. Internal reconstruction work on the larger of the two halls, including roofing work is planned to take place in the financial year 2013-14.

Improvements are set to include a backstage cloakroom and improvements to the stage in the large hall.

Coun Eddie Mardell said: “We welcome this award which has been given by the local council which will make the large hall a more attractive place for residents using it and those who will be using it in the future.” The town council has put up £2,446.50 for match funding by a third party. Organisations to be approached include WREN for the roof and the Lottery Awards for the classroom.
