The mayor of Oswestry enjoyed another 'Meet The Mayor' event last week.

Held outside the Aroma cafe, in Bailey Street, councillor Duncan Kerr met with Oswestry residents and visitors to hear their thoughts and ideas.

Cllr Kerr had previously held 'Meet The Mayor sessions virtually because of Covid-19 restrictions, but was able to meet people safely face-to-face.

The mayor heard that the government's “Eat out to Help Out” scheme had been well received by both businesses and customers and that Oswestry’s growing café culture created a welcoming and bustling atmosphere.

He also heard nice comments from visitors about the town.

“I found this a very positive session,” he said. “It was really encouraging to hear the passion, resilience and commitment the people of Oswestry showed.

“We can look forward to better times with great confidence. People are very proud of this town, its heritage, its rural aspect and its events such as the Balloon Carnival.

“I am keen to hear from more residents and to make it easier for people to meet me, I will be holding more 'Meet The Mayor' sessions.

“I am looking forward to welcoming you along for an informal chat without an appointment.”

The next 'Meet The Mayor' session will take place on Wednesday, September 16 between 10.30am and 11.30am at Hatters Café in the Powis Market Hall.

Cllr Kerr will hold another session on Monday, September 28 between 10.30am and 11.30am at Liar Liar in Bailey Street, before a session on Monday, October 5 from 10.30am and 11.30am at Square One Cafe in Festival Square.
