Help shape the future of where you live in virtual engagement events with an on-line event for Kew on Thursday, 6th August at 6.30pm.

Residents are invited to have their say on community issues, feedback their experiences of the Covid19 pandemic, and share their ideas on local priorities following the impact of the pandemic, in a series of virtual community engagement events.

The Community Conversation is chance for ward councillors to hear what matters most to residents and businesses and share ideas about the future of local areas. Over the past few years, events have been held in every area across the borough.

Due to the pandemic, physical events are currently not possible, therefore the Council is trialling online engagement sessions using Zoom. The first trial event was held earlier this month for residents in Ham, Petersham and Richmond Riverside. Nearly 80 residents logged in – sharing their thoughts on issues such as impact of Coronavirus, cycling, Richmond Park, public transport, community safety and accessibility.

The Council is now rolling out the programme to all other wards across the borough. Those who wish to attend their local event, can find out more and pre-register here. Once registered they will be sent a personal link with the Zoom log in 24 hours and 20 minutes before the events begin and will be able hear from the Leader of the Council and their local ward councillors live.

Attendees will be invited to have their say via video or text chat on what Coronavirus has meant for them and their local area and give their ideas on what needs to be done to help the recovery process in their local area.
