Mearsn CC plea

PEOPLE are being asked to help Newton Mearns community council by giving representatives their views on local services.

NMCC is staging an open week to hear residents' views on services including policing, parks, planning, transport and provision for the youth and elderly.

Drop-in sessions will be held during the week from 6pm to 9pm to collate more answers for its survey.

The first will be held on Monday in the Fairweather hall, the second on Wednesday in the Albertslund hall and the last in Mearns Castle high on Thursday.

NMCC members will then be out on the streets on Saturday, May 15 with the survey.

James Sandeman, spokesman for NMCC, told The Extra: "The community council's function is to speak for Newton Mearns residents, which they can only do by listening.

"So people can make their voice heard by attending one of these evening events, speaking to a member in the street or e-mailing [email protected]

"Then NMCC can legitimately make appropriate representations on behalf of residents".
