NFRAG PUBLIC MEETINGS

New Ferry Residents Association (NeFRA) consists of a group of local residents who volunteer their time to work on behalf of the New Ferry community. 

We have a committee which meets informally when required to pursue a number of projects in agreement with local residents and businesses.

Two or three times each year, however, we hold public meetings where YOU can come along to hear our latest plans and ideas, put forward your own ideas to improve New Ferry.

Although NeFRA is a non-political organisation, our local councillors also come along to most of our meetings where you can meet them face to face and raise any concerns you might have.

We welcome your support and input for these meetings.

The date and time of our next meeting is displayed in the box to the right.

 

The next NeFRA public meeting will be announced here

 

 

 

 

 


CONSTITUENCY COMMITTEE MEETINGS

These replace the previous Area Forums, and  are important local meetings where decisions are made about your local services and other projects.

These meetings are attended by local councillors, local police officers, representatives from the Wirral Primary Care Trust, and other organisations.

The meetings allow members of the public to question any issues being discussed, and to ask questions which they would like to raise themselves.

Find out more about the Wirral South Constituency.

 

The next WIRRAL SOUTH CONSTITUENCY COMMITTEE MEETING will be announced here.
