CAMBRIDGESHIRE’S new police and crime commissioner has outlined plans to hold regular surgeries for members of the public to raise

issues or concerns.

Sir Graham Bright is to offer one-to-one appointments with members of the public. At surgeries scheduled to take place at locations around the county during December and into the new year.

Sir Graham said: “I was elected to represent the views of all communities, including those in the cities of Cambridge and Peterborough an the districts of Huntingdonshire, Fenland, East Cambridgeshire and South Cambridgeshire.

“In order to be the voice of the public I am keen to meet and listen to as many people as possible. The surgeries will ensure members of the public can raise any concerns they have so I can work with relevant agencies to respond to these.”

Sir Graham added that was keen also to engage with Neighbourhood Watch and other volunteer groups and parishes.

He said: “I am exploring how my office can best link in with all these meetings, including the existing 120 police and council-led public meetings.

“My surgeries will complement this activity and mean that people do not have to wait until one of these local meetings to raise a matter of concern.”

The first surgery will be taking place in Peterborough later this month and others have been planned for 2pm on Thursday, January 24, in Cambourne and 2pm on February 21 in Fenland, though the location is yet to be confirmed.

If you would like to book an minute appointment to speak to Sir Graham, contact the
