The meeting takes place in the Conference Room, Parkhouse Centre, Ergue-Gaberic Way, Bude, EX23 8LD.

Exercising for Mobility will give a presentation about their free social exercise classes for adults of all ages who have a disability, a long-term health condition, mobility and balance problems or other condition where exercise can help.

Oliver Jones, CORMAC’S Area Highway and Environment Manager, will attend the meeting to give an overview of CORMAC’s highway service standards, including how repairs are managed and how people can report highways defects.  Councillor Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport, will also be there to answer any questions.

In addition to this, there will be an opportunity for local updates from Cornwall, town and parish councillors and time for public questions.
